New York City recently banned smoking cigarettes in its parks. Samantha Bee, “Daily Show” correspondent, went to one of the parks and checked out just how family-friendly and enjoyable it was now that smoking is disallowed.

Watch her hilarious investigation below, embedded courtesy of Comedy Central. Originally aired on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” June 20, 2011.
