Car-Free Space Is an Instant Hit on Broadway

Here's the view from 45th Street looking south at about 1 pm today, about 30 minutes after the city Dept. of Transportation closed Broadway to motor vehicle traffic in Midtown. It's obviously way too soon to judge how this experiment is working but today, at least, car-free Broadway appears to be a huge hit. 

If you have any photos of your own, we'd love to see them. E-mail them to tips at streetsblog dot org or tag them "streetsblog" in Flickr.
