The controversial curfew at Washington Square Park is scheduled to resume this coming weekend once again closing the park two hours early at 10 p.m. Friday, June 4th-Sunday, June 6th. The park’s traditional “curfew” is 12 midnight. This past weekend was mostly raining so not much revelry or activity going on; this made it that much more questionable to shut the entire park down early.
This curfew was initially set for two weekends; however, it sounds as if NYPD/Parks Department plan to continue it past this coming weekend.
