Old New York is back and everything old is new again, so much that one almost doesn’t go out at night anymore because of what I have been reading in the headline news lately, a crime wave, that seems to be global, at least in America. At least that’s the way it’s kind of looking on the subways, streets and parks of New York City after all the rich people have fled the cities and all the tourists are gone due to that scary virus that came from out of nowhere earlier this year and an International travel ban that has now resulted in headlines like Escape From New York: Wealthy Residents Flee In Droves As The City Degenerates Into A HellholeRetail Chains Abandon Manhattan: ‘It’s Unsustainable’NYC moms fleeing Upper West Side amid crime and chaosNew York City may take YEARS to recover after mass exodusA mad rush for the exits as New York City goes down the tubesNew York has grappled with gentrification for years. Covid has brought it to a headEmpty apartments in Manhattan reach record high, topping 13,000ATM ripped out of Manhattan deli as new crime ‘trend’ hits NYC and Hollywood’s Apocalypse NOW: Rich and famous are fleeing in droves as liberal politics and coronavirus turn City of Dreams into cesspit plagued by junkies and violent criminals.
And if I can web 2.0 user generated content say, back to the topic of this blog post, Washington Square Park. And so I found myself attempting to vend those DecorForU #blacklivesmatter, #S#!tJustGotReal, #notmypresident, #occupywallstret, #nopolicestate, #yoga, #brooklyn, #washingtonsquarepark and #iloveny necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins for $2 each at Washington Square Park again and wondering where to post all of those photos I took at that park again, and so I find myself posting them here on this blog, again….  And so the scene has changed at Washington Square Park in New York City, ever since the virus and now those Black Lives Matter protests have started, as there seems to be Black Live Matter protests in that park on a daily basis, as a couple of them, one, an Asians for Black Lives Matter protest was there yesterday as in those photos and videos that find themselves posted above. And from what I saw in that park yesterday, there are people and their DJ system who seem to be having a dance party there every Saturday night. And I came across Nikki, @thefabledpickle, whose arrest with the use of an unmarked van that drew parallels to Portland protests. there in that park with that skateboard one day, and also POWER TO US, who were handing out those Justice for Breonna Taylor postcards one day.  And times they are ever changing as the only thing constant is change. And this virus and now those Black Lives Matter protests that both seem to be global is enough to make me want to blagher say that we are living in crazy and historical times.  And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State. Black Lives Matter. Occupy Wall Street Worldwide.
