NYC curfew ends, earlier start set for Tuesday night after more looting

x

End of curfew arrives in NYC, looters largely absent during quiet night

The NYPD used several tactics overnight to crack down on the looting that has plagued the city in recent nights, including arresting non-protesting groups of people after the 8 p.m. curfew went into effect.

If police approached those groups, officials say, many tried to run. Police say they found items like bats and hammers on those they arrested.

The NYPD is reporting 280 arrests.

CitiBike also shut down its service overnight, along with Revel motorized scooters. City officials say looters were using the scooters to get ahead of protests, bring supplies in for vandalism, and scout out police movements.

Both services were deactivated before the curfew went into effect, and it appeared to work.

Looters strike luxury shops around NYC before curfew sets in

As the sun set Monday, the looting started once again across Manhattan as protests entered their fifth day in New York City.

Businesses on 5th and Madison avenues were spotted putting up plywood to prevent looting. However, that didn't stop the looters from breaking in and grabbing what they wanted from the luxury stores.

NYPD officers were standing by shops with shattered windows like the The Nintendo Store, Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Barnes and Noble. Mannequins could be seen on the broken glass-covered sidewalks.

Attempted looters clashed with police as vandals smashed into a boutique tea shop in the middle of Rockefeller Center.

Police made one arrest, tackling a man to the ground.

Another day of peaceful George Floyd protests as NYC ends curfew

Police moved barricades so protesters could approach the Trump International Hotel and Tower in midtown Manhattan as thousands continued to march against police brutality - this time without a curfew looming in the night.

Peaceful protests continued Sunday with hundreds of protesters, most of them wearing masks, making their voices heard in several locations across the city.

Marches took place over the course of the day as demonstrators walked through Union Square, Washington Square Park, Columbus Circle and throughout Brooklyn.

Police at multiple protests in Brooklyn on Sunday were not wearing riot masks, which had been standard at protests for the past week.

NYC mayor says NYPD strategies worked on Tuesday night

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio says he believes Tuesday night's historic 8 p.m. curfew, along with police enforcement of its restrictions, helped curtail the looting and violence of previous nights.

At 96th Street and Riverside Drive, the NYPD set up a checkpoint overnight for cars traveling south down Riverside and for those coming off the Henry Hudson Parkway, blocking anyone who is not an essential worker or who doesn't live in the area.

For-hire vehicles like Uber and Lyft were also banned from 8 p.m. until 12:30 a.m.

CitiBike also shut down its service overnight, along with Revel motorized scooters.

New York Gov. Cuomo weighs curfew for NYC following George Floyd protests

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he's considering placing a curfew on New York City and has the state's National Guard on standby following a weekend of violent protests over the cop killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he’s imposing a curfew on New York City starting Monday night and has the state’s National Guard on standby after a weekend of violent protests over the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, at the hands of police in Minneapolis.

Cuomo said the curfew starts at 11 p.m. and will be lifted at 5 a.m. Tuesday, he said in an interview with WAMC public radio on Monday. The governor and Mayor Bill de Blasio will review whether to renew the curfew in the morning, he said.

The New York City Police Department will also double its presence to help prevent violence and property damage, Cuomo and de Blasio said in an emailed statement. The additional officers will be deployed to areas where violence and property damage occurred during Sunday night’s protests — specifically in lower Manhattan and downtown Brooklyn.

“I’ve told mayors all across the state that I can call out the National Guard,” Cuomo said at a news conference earlier Monday.

Cuomo said he believe the New York Police Department should have enough personnel, but he will call in the National Guard if they need more backup. Some of the violent actions taken by the NYPD have exacerbated the problem, he said.

“There are videos of some NYPD actions that are very disturbing. There are videos of NYPD cars driving into a crowd that are very disturbing. Pulling a mask down off of a person to pepper spray them. Throwing a woman to the ground. It’s on video. It’s on video,” he said.

Cuomo said he asked New York Attorney General Letitia James on Saturday to conduct a report on those officers acting aggressively toward the protesters. He said that no immediate actions have been taken until James submits the report.

“I asked the attorney general for a report. I want that report done 30 days from when I asked her just two days ago. But I’m going to speak to the mayor about, in the meantime, what is the response for those police actions on video.”

Cuomo said that he has the legal authority to impose a curfew, which a handful of cities across the country have implemented, but he’s not at that point. However, he said he knows “something has to be done because last night was not acceptable and the night before was not acceptable on any level.”

Some state governors, like those in Minnesota, Georgia, Ohio, Washington and Kentucky, have also mobilized their National Guard forces.

Earlier Monday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio addressed the reports of police misconduct during the weekend’s violent protests, saying that they will be immediately investigated but defended a “vast majority” of NYPD officers.

De Blasio was criticized for initially defending the officers who rammed their cars into a group of people, saying the incident was caused by the protesters surrounding the vehicles.

Cuomo said he stands with the protesters over the killing of Floyd, adding “it perverts everything you believe about this country.” The mass gatherings, however, are “counterproductive” to the city’s goal of reopening the economy.

“We just spent 93 days limiting behavior, closing down, no school, no business, thousands of small businesses destroyed,” he said. “People will have lost their jobs, people wiped out their savings, and now mass gatherings? With thousands of people in close proximity? One week before we’re going to reopen New York City?”

New York City is scheduled to begin its phase one reopening next week, although Cuomo warned that the mass gatherings over the weekend could threaten the city’s progress in controlling the coronavirus spread.

“We spent all this time closed down, locked down, masked, socially distanced and then you turn on the TV and you see these mass gatherings that could potentially be infecting hundreds and hundreds of people after everything that we have done,” he said.

New York City ends curfew one day early

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Sunday morning that the curfew is lifted effective immediately as the city prepares for reopening.

The mayor tweeted yesterday and last night we saw the very best of our city.

The 8 p.m. citywide curfew, New York's first in decades, had been set to remain in effect through at least Sunday.

While the curfew was lifted, the mayor said a decision hadn't been made yet on whether to lift a ban on vehicles in Manhattan south of 96th Street after 8 p.m.

The damage was widespread throughout multiple neighborhoods.

Apple stores, a Verizon store and clothing stores were all damaged -- not just with their windows shattered, but the contents inside were taken.
Cameras captured looters inside an Urban Outfitters at 14th and 6th moments after the windows were shattered.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio holds a briefing after city curfew — 6/2/2020

Where Curfews Have Been Imposed in the U.S. as Protests Continue

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio extended a citywide curfew to a second night after more looting erupted in midtown Manhattan.

The original curfew was imposed from 11 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. after weekend protests of the death of George Floyd led to violence in the most populous U.S. city.

The police department sent 8,000 officers into the streets, doubling its presence in areas where there was violent property damage, according to a joint statement from de Blasio and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announcing the initial curfew. But the looting continued, so the mayor late Monday announced an extension of the restrictions, from 8 p.m. Tuesday to 5 a.m.

Violence by protesters “obscures the righteousness of the message,” Cuomo said earlier Monday at a press briefing. “It plays into the hands of people and forces who don’t want to make changes.”

In Washington, which has also been shaken by looting, arson and vandalism near the White House and beyond, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced a curfew from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. The curfew is five hours earlier than one imposed Sunday night. Bowser told reporters Monday that “the vast majority of people” obeyed that restriction, allowing the police to focus on “those people who were intent on breaking the law.”

Cuomo Denounces de Blasio, NYPD After Another Night of Violence, Looting

Gov. Andrew Cuomo denounced New York City Mayor de Blasio and the NYPD as ineffective in the face of the nightly looting. The governor said he offered help from the National Guard, an option de Blasio opposes.

The NYPD and the mayor did not do their job last night, I believe that, Cuomo said at his briefing in Albany. You have 38,000 NYPD people. It is the largest police department in the United States of America. Use 38,000 people and protect property.

Cuomo and de Blasio are frequently at odds, but the governor was especially forceful in accusing his fellow Democrat of underestimating the problem.

On Monday, an 11 p.m. curfew — the city's first in decades — failed to prevent destruction as groups of people smashed their way into shops, including Macy's flagship Manhattan store.

Police said nearly 700 people were arrested and several officers were injured during the chaos Monday night and early Tuesday.
