City Hall Park was mysteriously closed today.
Park gates were locked and garbage cans were pulled inside the normally busy park.
Park patrons lined the exterior and ate lunch on the curb on this beautiful day.
City officials say the NYPD closed the entire park as Broadway was used as a staging area for the May Day parade.
The closure comes the day after the city experienced torrential rains.
Access Denied. Bike path entrance at Warren and Broadway shut.
Park entrance near Brooklyn Bridge.
