New York City Parks is unable to corroborate the Warren campaigns claim of 20,000 people attending the presidential candidates Monday rally in Washington Square Park, with a spokeswoman telling Breitbart News that NYC Parks permitted Warrens event for an audience of 8,000 10,000.
The Warren campaign is touting Mondays rally in Washington Square Park as the candidates biggest rally to date, with over 20,000 people in attendance. The campaign told the Hill that it stopped counting individuals pouring in once Warren started speaking.
20,000 showed up for an @ewarren rally in New York tonight. It's her largest rally to date. https://t.co/2SDwSpDZo2

While it is not as easy to get an accurate crowd estimate for an outside event, Breitbart News reached out to NYC Parks to confirm the Warren campaigns estimate.
NYC Parks Assistant Commissioner for Communications, Crystal Howard, told Breitbart News that NYC Parks permitted Warrens rally for an audience of half that size 8,000 to 10,000. The department believes the parks capacity is 10,000, she added.
The assistant commissioner told Breitbart News that they cant corroborate the campaigns count.
This is hardly the first time the Warren campaign has inflated numbers to tout crowd size. The Warren campaign claimed it had 12,000 people attend a town hall meeting at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, in August. However, the crowd was at half of that, with 4,000 to 6,000 in attendance.

She speaks with forked tounge
i counted one person in attendance in the picture shown...
probably closer to the actual number attending.
In Rome, all the citizens supported the Empire’s bread and circuses.
Same Democrat media that refuses to show actual crowd size at Trump rallies.
NYC Parks Dept. reports to Warren Wilhelm, who is not conceding any points to his opponents.
It’s amazing that this sad old lying sack can draw 10 people.
Democrats lie, what a surprise.
If Elizabeth Warren was actually doing it, Democrat media would be letting everyone know.
Yes, Ms. Warren the false, “Fake News Story Indian” and many other bad falsehoods is lie teller extraordinary. but...my input is let the witch rant and rave, brag & swoon....but, she is going nowhere....the good people that reside and vote in the great state of Massachusetts must have had their heads up their butts when they cast votes for this uesless, sad sack, twisted and boring piece of female humanity!!!
Inflating crowd size is SO 2016...
Last month her campaign claimed 15,000 showed up at Seattle Center when in reality it was 3,000 at best and Seattle Center has that many on a hot Summer weekend anyways so it’s likely many meandered over to the area where Warren’s stage was set up.
The liberal local rag made no mention of crowd size and interviewed liberals who were not enthusiastic about Warren. None interviewed were excited about her. Says a lot right there.
So where did the campaign come up with 15,000?
Likely that was the size of the mailing list they bought from the DNC.
Free $#*+ attracts crowds, no doubt about it. Even Jesus Christ stopped attracting crowds of 5,000 when he quit giving away bread and fish.
I pulled up an image of this park, it is about 9 acres big, it has tons of structures, trees, gardens, facilities, etc, how on earth could 8,000 people gather there?
Trump Rally 15,000 people media sees an empty seat behind a support column and claim Trump lied that the place was filled up.
Liz Warren claims to have 20,000 people in a 9 acre park, that you would be lucky to 8,000 people. Media ignores her lie and parrot her numbers
no bias here
They lie, and their lying media covers for them
“Its amazing that this sad old lying sack can draw 10 people.”
She payum big wampum to paleface libtards (t-shirts like beads to libtards).
Paleface libtards come to see Grey Beaver speak with forked tongue.
With Warren, we’ve learned to multiply all claims by 1/1024th.
I think 3000 is being very generous. Looked like about 1500 to me, at best.
She speaks with liberal forked tongue.
It is impossible for them to ever tell the truth!
I was first going to ignore the nonsense you wrote but I decided against it. Jesus never advertised free lunches to people if they would come to hear him speak.
