Celebrate Car Free Earth Day in New York City

In fact, traffic congestion is so bad that the City is proposing a congestion tax, that would charge drivers traveling in highly congested areas during the times of day when traffic is at its heaviest. To off set this and to encourage walking and public transportation, NYC will hold the third annual Car Free Earth Day event on Saturday April 21, 2018, the day before Earth Day. From Times Square to Union Square, Broadway will be closed to cars and only available to pedestrians and cyclists.
