A New York woman attended a free event to the public at Bryant Park to hear the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and was denied entrance based on her status as a nonvaccinated person. She videotaped herself being denied access based on vaccination.
“This is a public space, it is a free concert, but if you are not vaccinated you can not go in to enjoy the concert,” a social media influencer posted on Twitter.
“Scary how people are cool with segregation,” she wrote.

The woman, who posts as Polish American Brotherhood, asks the concert guard:
“What is the rule, here?” she asks as she walks up to the entrance, and a concert official approaches, showing a sign that reads “Vaccinated entrance.”
She asks: “Do you have to be vaccinated to come in to go onto the public lawn?”
The concert official answers, walking to block what appears to be the only entrance to the event, saying:
‘Yes, you do. It will be over in about 5-10 mins,” she said.
There’s a PCR test entrance on the opposite side too, so it’s vaccine card or pcr test to get inside the public park lawn to see the outdoor concert. Isn’t the park owned by the city? So the Philharmonic can set rules on public space?

Washington Post contributor Alicia Jessop celebrated the fresh humanity of the event:
“This is such a hopeful picture to me after a year of death, tragedy, lockdowns, and separation: a crowd gathers on the lawn of Bryant Park to listen to the New York Philharmonic.:

The culture writer for VOX was so enthralled with the event:
“Last night I saw my first live music event in over a year. There are way worse ways of doing it than listening to the New York Philharmonic playing while the sun sets over the Manhattan skyline, spread out below Green-wood Cemetary.”

Medical or Vaccine passports are a hot-button issue in New York and nationally as people prepare to reenter life outside of the Pandemic restrictions.
One group of reporters called the situation “Medical Jim Crow” when referring to the demands for vaccinations on the military, in their recent article on the topic:
We’ve seen numerous examples in recent weeks of medical, Jim Crow-style segregation in the United States.
Although prior examples revolved around public spheres for American citizens, these latest reports reveal the same treatment inflicted upon unvaccinated West Point cadets.
According to parents of cadets, those unvaccinated from the experimental COVID-19 jabs were forced to cram together in the same tent.
And this treatment will continue for the duration of summer training.
Claiming that it is acceptable to segregate people in public is a concern to many people and should be considered for how it enables the segregation of other people in other situations. If segregation is wrong, it is wrong.
According to a 2017 Modern Health Care article, New York Medical professionals know that medical segregation is wrong, reporting:
A new study has found that black patients are less likely than whites to be hospitalized at private academic medical centers in New York City. Those findings resurrect the hot-button belief that some private hospitals with deep pockets leave to care for the sickest and poorest patients to a struggling public hospital system. Some hospitals already have pushed back against the study’s findings and its implications that New York City’s hospital system is a highly segregated one.

Yet, powerful people can not stop trying to segregate people. Where does it stop?
