NYC mayor says large events canceled through Sept. 30
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that large events requiring a city events permit will be canceled through Sept. 30. 
The press release stated that the city will not issue a permit for any event in a location that interferes with the Open Streets or Open Restaurants program.
Permits will also be denied for all events larger than one block, stage or video events that require amplification, street fairs and events in parks that may unreasonably diminish public use.
"As New York has begun its reopening process, accessible open spaces are more important than ever," said Mayor Bill de Blasio. "While it pains me to call off some of the city's beloved events, our focus now must be the prioritization of city space for public use and the continuation of social distancing."
