8 blocks of Avenue B are now open for pedestrians and bikers (and local traffic)



Avenue B will be closed to through traffic today and tomorrow from Sixth Street to 14th Street — .39 miles in total ...



This stretch is part of the 13 miles of open streets citywide this weekend that Mayor de Blasio announced yesterday... all being done in an attempt to help residents get some fresh air while social distancing.

Local traffic for pick ups and drop offs as well as deliveries are allowed behind the police barricades.

The hours: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Did it this morning. It should have went from 14th Street to Houston, not stopping at 6th Street. And sorry, the "local traffic" exemption could be abused. We shall see.

Close most of Tompkins Square Park and open avenue B. Ya, makes sense...
