"The enforcement action you are requesting raises serious First Amendment and other legal concerns… Under the guise of cleaning the Park you are threatening fundamental constitutional rights."
- A letter from the National Lawyers Guild representing the Occupy Wall Street Protestors to New York City counsel. The only problem is NLG isn’t quite sure how First Amendment applies to these public private spaces, nor whether these rules are content-agnostic. This is a fascinating legal issue, mixing first amendment with zoning regulations and these weird public/private parks rules. Don’t worry, folks - this is what lawsuits are for!
