Update 8/22: David Everitt-Carlson reminds us of the consequences of the recent changes to NYC Parks rules:
“If he’s taking donations the Parks Dept. now considers that illegal in [Central Park], Union Square, The High Line and Battery and could summons him – unless he’s on a medallion and using a 3′X8′ table with nothing else on the ground.”
When you ban public art, you are banning this man and his bubbles. Bet you feel accomplished right now, rule-writers.
Original post: Popped up for air at Union Square with Milo this week, and who was there but this guy:
I’ll be darned if those bubbles weren’t the most beautiful thing I’ve seen all week. And do you ever see New Yorkers smile like that?
and see how many people have stopped with their babies – kids love that sort of thing 🙂
Oh, he was just starting in that photo. You should have seen them all five minutes later!
If he’s taking donations the Parks Dept. Now considers that illegal in CP, Union Square, The High Line and Battery and could summons him – unless he’s on a medallion and using a 3’X8′ table with nothing else on the ground. Yes, the laws in those 4 parks are that stupid;(
Thanks, that’s a valuable reminder and I added it to the post.
