Default Busking in Washington Square Park

Hey a good friend of mine is thinking about going to NYC specifically Washington Square Park to busk. Was wondering what the skinny is about busking there and NYC in general.

Any help would be appreciated.

WOW no one here has any info they would want to share. I guess NYC is not the place to be any more.

Like lotto, you have to play to win. Slow times in a poor market. You can do it. Best.

I've heard some stories about that place. Be ready to avoid fights.

Default Washington Square Park

Hey Gman ~ funny how we keep running into each other

Yeah I really want to do some Street Perfroming in NY this year and was reading about Washington Square Park and was wondering if it was still a good Pitch?

Also looking into Ocean City MD, and Atlantic City NJ. Anyone have the links to the rules & regulations?

I am a weekend warrior and anyother Pitches say within 4 - 5 Hours of Harrisburg, PA would be a great help.

{Oh and just to cover my bases I did a search and crap came back }

Thumbs down

Washington Sq. Park is currently under construction. There is still little spaces that might work for a show but the main pitch is fenced off. I don't know if it'll be done by time it's warm. They've been working on it for a while so anything is possible!

MagicGuy,

O.C. isn't what it used to be.. there's going to be some major changes there since they are "tightening" the ordinance ...

U may want to look into Ocean City, New Jersey
