    Default What Are the Laws Regarding Public Speaking in a City Like NYC

    Can any mass of people congregate in a public park, setup some speakers and listen to an orator speak about politics, for example? Is this protected by the right to peaceful assembly? I'm talking about non-pandemic times, btw. Thanks for any help provided.

    Generally, yes. Though some limits can be placed. You might try reading materials on this site: https://www.freedomforuminstitute.or...ds%20offensive.

    Generally yes, but if your crowd is going to be big enough that it might impede the rights of the public to use or pass through the area you might be required to get a permit first.
