Are you facing charges for creating art in the subway? Did you have a ticket thrown out and want to sue? Or are you looking for clear tips for your first time performing?
We have advice for you here, starting with your rights in theory, moving on to what you can do if there’s a problem in practice, and concluding with contact information for lawyers we’ve worked with in the past. And we strongly recommend reviewing City Lore’s comprehensive “Know Your Rights” guide for subway performers.
Above all, remember that you are well-protected. Since 2012, the NYPD has paid out $50,000 in settlements to wrongfully arrested or wrongfully ticketed performers. With any questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
