12 More Miles of NYC Open Streets for Pedestrians beginning Thursday, May 14

Today, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the opening 12 additional miles of streets beginning on Thursday, May 14. This is in addition to the 9 miles which have already been opened to pedestrian traffic as part of the Open Streets Initiative.

On May 4, seven initial streets were closed to vehicular traffic with another two miles on May 7. This is all part of the effort to help and enable New Yorkers’ adherence to social distancing rules amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This will be different types of open streets. It’ll be streets managed by local partners like Business Improvement Districts, streets supported by local precincts where the precincts will figure out a plan with community members to make sure the open streets are protected and that there’s presence to make sure people are safe – and then, protected bike lanes,” said the Mayor.
