NYC Car Free Earth Day
Saturday, April 27, 2019
9:00 am – 3:00 pm
30 blocks worth of traffic free streets!
New Yorkled’s always looked forward to that other similar event (Summer Streets) which takes place in the Summer. So it’s with great anticipation that we look forward to this day earlier in the year to be able to walk about the streets with camera in hand for the sake of capturing the city in a way not usually possible.
The following is borrowed from the official page here…
