I visit Washington Square Park whenever I have the opportunity in my visits to NYC, and I do believe that if anyone wants to play music on that property, they should have the freedom and the right to do so, for the enjoyment of parkgoers and visitors.

NYC has a habit of both relentlessly promoting itself based off the talent of those who make it the city it is, & then extorting those same individuals with fines, tickets, & in Kanami’s case: Ads plastering her face everywhere via the NY government & refusing to pay her.

I, myself, have both seen and experienced the messy regulations and obstacles that vendors/performers were constantly being subjected to, @ the very hands of NY itself. We bring in the tourists they need to keep being NYC, yet we are the most reprimanded. How is NY to enforce “rules” & fines on those contributing positively, when NY let’s drugged-up sexual predators roam freely in the same park that they are telling Kanami & others to leave and/or pay ridiculous fines.

Do better NYC. The Kanamis of the world deserve it.

Artists deserve to have their work shared and loved without fear of being shutdown for unreasonable reasons or taken advantage of.

busking is a lifestyle it makes no sense to charge people for art, lower the fee to $5/week then we can talk
