NEW YORK - More than 200 people were arrested across New York City as thousands of protesters stayed on the streets of New York City, violating curfew for yet another evening on Thursday.
Police quickly moved in on protesters and arrested 270 people who continued past the 8 p.m. curfew in various locations including Mott Haven in the Bronx, Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, Herald Square, Midtown Manhattan and the Upper East Side.
At some locations, officials watched but didn’t immediately move in. At other spots, they made orderly arrests without the batons and riot gear, like a night earlier when 180 protesters were arrested for breaking curfew.
Actions by the protesters included a gathering at Brooklyn’s Cadman Plaza, the site where police used batons against demonstrators who were out past the city-imposed curfew a night earlier.
