New Yorkers prepare for car-free Times Square

OPENING now on Broadway: pedestrian malls at Times Square and Herald Square.

As part of a Department of Transportation plan to make New York City more livable, cars will be banned from stretches of Broadway at Times Square and at Herald Square, near the Macy's flagship department store.

The city says the move will reduce pollution and pedestrian accidents and help traffic flow more smoothly.

The Department of Transportation says barriers are in place. Activities celebrating the new car-free era are planned for Monday.

Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan says her department will monitor the area closely during the initial adjustment period.
