A Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Tuesday found a majority of Americans sympathise with the protests.

There were peaceful marches and protests throughout the day Wednesday, but police moved in to break them up when the curfew took effect. What I saw doesn't represent the people of the Bronx. "We don't have to go out and loot and do all the other things". Cuomo spokesman Richard Azzopardi later said the governor "has respect and confidence in the NYPD" and felt the mayor should put more officers on the streets.

According to Police Commissioner Dermot Shea, about 350 protestors were arrested and more than 30 members of the NYPD were injured Saturday evening.

Trump has pushed the nation's governors to take a hard line against the violence, tweeting on Tuesday that "lowlifes and losers" were taking over New York's streets.

The curfew did not stop political demonstrations over police mistreatment of black Americans. "That is the essence of a police force".

The areas that will have to wait for outdoor dining include Long Island and the mid-Hudson Valley, which entered the first phase of reopening last week, and New York City, which is scheduled to enter the first phase next week.

Washington DC followed suit on Sunday, with NY announcing its own the following day.

The attack shows the hard balance police must strike, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.

Use the police, protect property and people.

"I'm surprised", said Risha Munoz, on Manhattan's Upper West Side, where at points protesters were greeted with cheers and horns by onlookers in building windows.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the looting incident at Macy's was "a shame".

The crowd remained in Lafayette park and elsewhere in the capitol after curfew, despite threats by Mr Trump to use the military to crack down on what he has called lawlessness by "hoodlums" and "thugs".

Kenyan opposition leader and former Prime Pinister Raila Odinga offered a prayer for the US, "that there be justice and freedom for all human beings who call America their country". That's what they did.

Once-in-a-generation protests have brought a multiracial and overwhelmingly peaceful coalition into the streets for the past week but each night has descended into mayhem, with both activists and officials blaming rabble-rousers.

Almost an hour after curfew in Washington, D.C. the protesters at the Capitol joined those in Lafayette Park near the White House, where on Monday police used teargas and rubber bullets to clear the way for Trump to visit St. John's church nearby for a photo.

De Blasio responded, saying: "We do not need the National Guard to come into New York City. No", said demonstrator Lisa Horton, calling for "radical change" in the criminal justice system. "It is too important and the message must be heard".

A New York City police officer on an anti-looting patrol was ambushed Wednesday in Brooklyn by a man who walked up behind him and stabbed him in the neck, police said, setting off a struggle in which the assailant was shot and two other officers suffered gunshot injuries to their hands.

She added, "We look forward to hearing more from the mayor and NYPD on their plans for enforcement and compliance with this proposal".

Some of those who have gathered at the site of Floyd's killing have invoked the non-violent message of the late USA civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., assassinated in 1968, as the only way forward.

Officers were injured in clashes elsewhere, including one who was in critical condition after being hit by a auto in the Bronx, police said.

Looters also broke stores of other high-end brands such as Nike and Coach store, stealing expensive goods and vandalized a Barnes & Noble bookstore while destroying other smaller storefronts along the way.
