Bloomberg To Close More Of Broadway For Pedestrians

Building on his well-received experiment last year, Mayor Bloomberg is expected to announce today that beginning in May, Broadway from 47th to 42nd Street and from 35th to 33rd (i.e., Herald Square) will be closed to vehicular traffic.

It’s believed that eliminating traffic from Broadway’s diagonal intersections for these blocks and relegating traffic to the grid will actually improve traffic flow.

If deemed successful, the changes could be permanent.

I’m never on Broadway between 47th & 42nd Streets but I can say that Herald Square with half the traffic would be a dream.
