NYC Mayor Under Fire After Being Caught Walking In Park 11 Miles From House

NY City Mayor de Blasio was recorded walking in park 11 miles from his home.

New York, NY – A man in Brooklyn took video accusing the New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio of violating the state’s stay-at-home order by walking in a park that was 11 miles away from his residence.

The video was posted on Twitter and showed de Blasio and his wife Chirlane McCray walking while wearing face masks.

“Seriously, you guys have a park. You live in the middle of a park. You don’t need to non-essentially travel to Brooklyn,” Darren Goldner said in the video while following the mayor, according to the New York Post.

Goldner was referring to Carl Schurz Park near Gracie Mansion, which is the de Blasio’s residence.

As de Blasio and his wife walked away, the mayor said, “C’mon guys. Give it a break.”

“I’m not going to give it a break. This is selfish behavior,” Goldner shouted as the mayor and his wife walked away. “This is so terribly selfish. You call yourself a progressive, but you chauffeur yourself to Brooklyn. You force people to drive you.”

The New York Post reported that the Mayor and McCray have been spotted previously walking in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park.

The state of New York has been by far the most hard hit by the coronavirus.

The stay-at-home order states that “individuals should limit outdoor recreational activities to non-contact and avoid activities where they come in close contact with other people.”

Politico reporter Sally Goldenberg posted a Tweet on April 6 that stated de Blasio claimed his 11-mile drive to Prospect Park from his residence in Manhatten was something he needs to do “to be most effective.”

Rules are for thee and not for me once again. One of our resident trolls (CW) said just the other day that Debozo was doing a wonderful job. My only hope is CW lives in that sewer. Could I be that lucky?

Really?!?! It’s a free world. Sometimes a person can get bored with “their” location/park. This is just someone wanting attention on themselves.

Daren is looking for his 5 minutes of Fame and the "fake news" media jumps all over it to make a big friggin thing out of it. The guy and his wife live in what still is a free country. He gets to have some Trump hillbilly redneck call all Democrats hypocrites and him a "disgrace". I noticed in the photo he and his wife are the only ones wearing masks. Everybody else is wearing nothing but grins. Dumbshits! The CDC reports that those places that are opening too soon have seen a 40% spike in Covid-19 cases. Go ahead, open up your cities, there still digging mass graves for you imbeciles.

Was he wearing a mask? was his entire entourage wearing masks? Was he maintaining social distancing? He's the mayor of Brooklyn too, he wants to observe what is going on in his area. I have 0 issues with this. Yes, he's an embarrassment of a mayor, yes, he supports criminals instead of cops, but this is not something that anyone should care about.

If the man wants to stretch his legs in Brooklyn, as long as he is taking the proper precautions, and not do it constantly, it's much ado about nothing.

The order says that “individuals should limit outdoor recreational activities to non-contact and avoid activities where they come in close contact with other people.” It does not say how many miles from your home you can be. Find something meaningful to pick on these people about... they usually offer us plenty of opportunities.
