I didn’t agree with the MAS position on artist vendors in parks but the organization does a lot of good work and offers many great programs. The MAS position ignores the “congestion” of Union Square Green Market, Bryant Park holiday market / previous fashion shows, Chanel buying ad space in Central Park – it appears problematic to me to put the spotlight on the one thing that’s not commercialized as a problem leading to a lack of open space.
