The Battle Begins

Robert Lederman, the President of the street artists’ organization A.R.T.I.S.T., sent out the following email message today regarding a Park Enforcement Police (PEP) action at Union Square Park (USP) in Manhattan:

New USP development Friday May 28

This Friday at 5:30 AM the PEP came to USP. They made all the artists leave the park. I heard they confiscated some unattended tables as well. The artists were then directed to stand in a line until 6AM at which time they were "allowed" to re-enter the park. The PEP then checked everyone's tax ID and did other enforcement.”
