What Happened to Times Square

Sometime after I left NYC, Mayor Bloomberg went and blocked off Times Square from any and all vehicular traffic. Pedestrians ONLY. If you’ve lived in NYC, you know that most residents avoid Times Square like the plague…. but given such an odd occurrence, I had to go and check it out for myself.


I’m not sure what to make of it all. It’s kind of interesting being able to sit in the middle of Times Square, but it is kind of an inconvenience at least from a traffic perspective. Although, realistically, how often was I or would I really be wanting to drive through Times Square…. Come to think of it, if it weren’t for this set up I would have had no reason to step foot in this tourist trap either. Nevertheless, it was a site to see…. and I’m glad I got to see it. 🙂
