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 [1] 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.
