New York City will make 30 blocks pedestrian only for Earth Day. This is a great move and should every weekend, not just for six hours one day of this year. Hopefully this will be a regular event.
Manhattan roads off Broadway will play host to fitness classes, sustainability workshops, and recreational options. Citi bikes normally for rent will also be free to use all day.
Downtown Manhattan will shut down to cars and buses, and be filled up with activities for pedestrians in honor of Earth Day.
