Smoke 'em out of parksNew cig-ban plan

• NY Post

"We don't think children, parents, when they're standing at soccer games, should have to be breathing in smoke from the person next to them," Farley said after unveiling the city's 10-point plan alongside Mayor Bloomberg.

"We don't think our children should have to be watching someone smoke."

The city could outlaw puffing in parks through legislation passed by the City Council or an administrative rule change by the Parks Department, Farley said. 

The mayor said his anti-smoking agenda includes glaring, "with not a particularly nice look," at smokers gathered outside buildings.
