New York City is set to hold its third car-free day on April 21. In Times Square on Monday, officials announced the plans for this year’s event. [[Ydanis Rodriguez, Chairman, NYC Council Transportation Committee]] “One of the biggest announcements today is that DOT, working together, has made a decision that this will be a yearly event." The event will close down a two-mile stretch of Broadway between Union Square and Times Square. It will be closed to vehicular traffic from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Part of St. Nicholas Avenue in Washington Heights will also be closed. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. the stretch between 181st St. and 190th St. will be closed to traffic.
