New York does carfree day

10 Aug

This is excellent.   It’s one thing when Vancouver has a carfree day but when it happens in NYC it’s a little different.

NEW YORK – In Paris, they call it La Plage, or the beach. And in Bogota, Colombia, it’s Ciclovia, or bikeway.

For six hours Saturday in New York, it was called Summer Streets: Nearly seven miles of Manhattan that were stripped of traffic, creating a weekend playground for bikers, walkers and loungers.
