Mr. Shankman claims there were no signs, gates, or traffic cones indicating that the park was closed.

Depends on whether the closure is in the officially published regulations. People are expected to read every word of the official city regulations. If the official regulations of the City of New York say no white shoes after Labor Day, they don't need to post signs before they send the fashion police after you.

it probably wasn't his first day on this run.   The difference is that under Guliani/Bloomberg etc.  no one gave a crap as long as you weren't in the park for drugs, sex, etc.  Deblasio is all about squeezing every cent of revenue out of the people of New York (especially the wealthier ones) to pay for his new social welfare projects.

He also wants to lower the speed limit to 25mph (for "safety"), and let's forget that jaywalking ticket writing went up 800% under him.

That's not a "theory"--that's a socialist with projects to fund.

I'm out of popcorn, but I have some pecan pie Pringles.  You gotta try them, they taste just like pecan pie.  I don't know how they did that.

Guy sounds like a douche, but I've never heard of anyone ever getting a ticket like this before. I agree it's pretty ridiculous.

jaywalking ticket writing went up 800% under him.

Tickets went up from zero to zero, by which I mean there's still no real chance of getting a ticket no matter how high pitched the whine out of streetsblog. The ticket cameras are making money. Jaywalking tickets won't even pay for a high speed motorcade trip. He's as much of a control freak as his predecessors. Giuliani went after jaywalkers and drivers, Bloomberg went after soda, and de Blasio is back to drivers and jaywalkers.

He should have just gone to the gym in 26 minutes.

Everything not mandatory is forbidden. At least he wasnt trying to smoke a cigarette.
 
2014-03-01 02:30:07 PM  
If this happened to me, and I was going to go to the press and make a big deal of it as he's done, I'd be naming the cop that wrote the ticket.
 
2014-03-01 02:31:51 PM  
Well he should have known better than to be so righteous about it.  cyclists next.

And then city people wonder why other people want to live in the suburbs.  I can park 20+ cars around my house for a party and don't have to worry about parking tickets, it is quiet, and I don't have cops looking to ticket me for whatever foolishness they've been told to write tickets for.

Really, 6am? Back when I worked for a living 6am was a half hour after I left for the office. But it's the sort of shiat you have to do when living in Central and dealing with peckers in NYC.

Except the city has grown, specifically because "other people" are moving into NY in droves. I wish people would want to live in the suburbs. It wouldn't be so filled with assholes.

Wow, according to the comments, Obama himself ticketed this guy.
It's pretty amazing that a president spend this much effort and time on personally enforcing the laws he passed.  Kudos, Mr Prez, for not being a lazy bum.

I don't know that this is a law that's actually been enforced before though. Maybe it has, but it's not something I've ever heard of. But regardless, this doesn't seem like something that should be a priority for the NYPD.

BSABSVR: Wait? I thought he was going to make New York into a lawless wasteland?


Hah.

If you want to study rich white liberals, don't study their rhetoric or their hypocrisy.  Study their methods when the chips are down because they are surprisingly effective.   http://narrative.ly/the-old-neighborhood/the-ins-and-the-outs/ - The 2nd half, and then add in Oak Park's explicit Black a Block strategy. There's a reason they're running this country.  And it's because they are the most sublime hypocrites.

/Hint: DiBlasio just appointed the guy behind stop and frisk to be police commisioner.  Whatever else may come, they won't be going lawless wasteland.

1. Persons may enter and use the parks from 6:00 a.m. until 1:00 a.m. unless other open hours are posted at any park.


Now he can argue that section 1 isn't a chargable section of the code and that he should have been charged with section A-3 and probably get it dismissed.


3. No person shall enter or remain in any park without the permission of the Commissioner when such park is closed to the public.

I would also argue that he was simply passing through the park incident to travel.

Oh, I'm sure it's been enforced before at least once or twice. Figure the law has to be at least 30 years old, if not older. I guessing 30 because that's when the crackdown on crime started.

This privileged cocksucker probably started mouthing off at the cop who was wondering why he was running through a closed park at 4AM. Then he lost his shiat at getting the ticket and threw a tantrum online.
Oh, and Central Park is apparently it's own precinct, so yeah, patrolling the park is their priority.

In the central park I used to know when I grew up in New York this would never have happened! Because he would have been mugged and left in the bushes not to be found until well after the park opened. I guess the city really has gotten better.

I lived any years less than a block away from CP.  There are signs everywhere about the hours.  Every entrance has one.  And I heard of many people getting such tickets.  It is nothing new.

Let me rephrase, I don't know that people typically got *ticketed* for this in the past. I have no doubt it was a rule and I have no doubt that a cop would at least stop someone in the park at those hours. But I've never heard of someone actually getting a ticket for it. I'd imagine that - in most cases - if the person wasn't up to anything else illegal they'd let it go with a warning or something.
