Car Free Day will return to New York for the third consecutive year on Saturday, April 21. Drivers should take note of the date, and the fact that at least 30 blocks of city streets will be closed to motor vehicle traffic.
City officials said the main stretch of Car Free Day street closures will return to Broadway in lower and Midtown Manhattan. Broadway will be shut down from Times Square (42nd Street) all the way down to Union Square (14th Street).
Last year’s Car Free Day also included traffic shutdowns in five additional sections of Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn. Additional closures are expected… so be sure to check traffic reports.
Five rest stops will be situated along the Broadway route at Times Square, Herald Square (34th Street), the Garment District (39th Street), Flatiron (23rd Street) and Union Square, city officials said. These stops will be home to various programs that promote advocacy and education for the issues of climate change and sustainability.
