New York City has imposed a late-night curfew. But it has failed to prevent another night of widespread damage, including arrests after a break-in at the flagship Macy's store in Manhattan, following protests over George Floyd’s death. The 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew announced Monday comes on top of existing coronavirus restrictions against public gatherings. But enough mayhem happened before the curfew took effect that Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted that it would move up to 8 p.m. Tuesday. The destruction began after big crowds rallied in Times Square and Brooklyn on Monday afternoon and marched peacefully through the streets for several hours.
