As to the police shutting down the sings. Newbold Morris was the Parks commissioner then(and all in all a good one) who asked for this. Pete Seeger has a song about it on an old LP called---I believe--4 Sinners and 1 Saint (or something close). The song is about "Newbold the Bold". Very clever piece.
