Do all street vendors in New York City accept debit/credit cards and/or traveller's checks?

I'm going shopping in NYC and plan to buy purses from street vendors in places such as Chinatown, but I don't know if I can pull cash out of New York City's ATM's using a Visa debit card with the name of a Southern bank on it (this bank's not located up North). So, I don't know what to do.... show more I'm going shopping in NYC and plan to buy purses from street vendors in places such as Chinatown, but I don't know if I can pull cash out of New York City's ATM's using a Visa debit card with the name of a Southern bank on it (this bank's not located up North).
