NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- What curfew? Well past 8 p.m. Thursday, protesters -- albeit most peacefully --  still filled streets of across New York City, with hundreds of arrests and reports of objects being thrown at officers.

At least 260 people were arrested over the course of the night, including in upper Manhattan and the Bronx, the NYPD said Friday morning.

Police confronted protesters at several locations after curfew, including near East 136th Street and Brook Avenue in Mott Haven, as well as on the Upper West Side.

Earlier in the day, thousands of people marched across the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan after a memorial service was held in Cadman Plaza Park for George Floyd, who died while in Minneapolis police custody.

Terrence Floyd, the younger brother of George Floyd was seen leading the demonstrators as they walked across the bridge and headed into Manhattan.

While still marching to raise awareness to the same issues that the Floyd family march did, the mood changed post-curfew as the NYPD began enforcing it. Here's a look so far at some top social posts:
