Greg Miller is Executive Director and Founder of Dance Parade, a not-for-profit cultural organization which organizes an annual event in New York City. Seven years ago, he held his first event in Washington Square Park. The end of the parade wrapped up under the park's Arch. The following year, Miller wanted to repeat the event at the historic downtown park but it had since gone under construction and was inaccessible. So he looked to midtown's Bryant Park. He spent "many hours putting together a proposal" for the four hour free event, "very detailed, which is what they require." The 'they' is the Bryant Park Corporation from which he received a response: "Thank you, that will cost you $100,000 -- at the non-profit fee." As a non-profit, this was well out of range of their budget; the group ended up at Tompkins Square Park in the East Village at a fraction of the cost.
