Growing List of Park Rules Irks Some New Yorkers

Authorities in NYC have been implementing many pieces of legislature over the past few months trying to improve the quality of life in our parks and public spaces. There are now restrictions on smoking, selling art and playing music. The parks of Manhattan are vital to the people using them – they provide an escape from the stress and intensity of the city. Such restrictions are seen by many as a violation of their first amendment rights. It also affects people making a living selling art or playing music. Advocates for the plans say it will benefit everyone in the long run making the parks more pleasant.
