O. Aldon James, National Arts Club President, Protests, Breaks Into Gramercy Park

Uh oh, it looks like there's big trouble in little ol' Gramercy Park.

On Tuesday, O. Aldon James, President of the National Arts Club, was forced to break into the park despite being one of the lucky citizens to have a key to the gate.

The Villager reports that after finding a note saying that the park was closed for the day, James scaled the fence using "two ladders... placed along the gate, one inside and one outside." James and a partner in crime then spent about an hour sitting on a bench preparing a speech.

"This today was our Boston Tea Party. We're not going to be taxed without access," James told The Villager.

You never know, maybe the NAC will be the next chapter of the Tea Party.
