CEO Ticketed For Early Morning Central Park Jog





” A flabbergasted Manhattan entrepreneur says he was ticketed for jogging too early in Central Park.

“ I just got a SUMMONS for running in Central Park at 430 am ‘before it opened.’ ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME NEW YORK CITY?” a furious Peter Shankman tweeted Thursday morning.

  The founder of Help a Reporter Out and self-described “author, speaker, and worldwide connector,” was on the second mile of a 10-mile run through the green space at 4:30 a.m. when a police officer stopped him because the park is technically closed from 1 a.m. to 6 a.m.”



    We always thought that New York was the “city that never sleeps” . While the Post article makes reference to the park “technically” being closed from 1am to 6am a visit to the Central Park website rules and regulations page offers no such rule . There is mention of restricted hours for driving on the Park roads but nothing about limits on pedestrian travel .

    A separate NYC Parks & Recreation website does proscribe a 1am to 6am curfew but a casual observer who went online to the Central Park website would not be informed of that fact unless they clicked on the link to Parks & Recreation .

Regardless , in a city of 8 million people , many of whom keep hours that are not exactly your standard 9-5 employment one would think that they park would be available earlier than 6am and doesn’t $1000 seem a bit excessive ?
