Performing Music Banned From Strawberry Fields In Central Park
I recently mentioned that performing music or singing near the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park had been banned due to its recent designation as a “Quiet Zone. ”
Now, it seems that Strawberry Fields has been claimed as a Quiet Zone as well. The city argues that they don’t want these particular areas to be overwhelmed by groups of musicians playing with amplified sound, but the ban applies to non amplified acoustic performances as well.
If you think it makes little sense for the city to ban people from singing and playing an acoustic guitar in a section of the park officially designated to John Lennon, check out the link below from strawberryfieldsnyc.com
