Why it’s (mostly) illegal to drone in NYC

I'm an FAA-certified pilot, but there are four reasons I can't fly drones in New York City:

1) FAA Part 107 says you can't fly over people.
2) NYC Parks prohibit drones.
3) Most of NYC is Class B airspace.
4) City administrative code: "Drones are illegal"

But there are 5 New York City Parks where you CAN fly:
