Open Streets

Streets Opened for Social Distancing

New York City is opening 40 miles of streets to allow for greater social distancing during the COVID-19 crisis, with a plan to expand to a total of 100 miles.

A mother and young child push strollers while walking on a street open to pedestrians and cyclists, while closed to vehicular traffic. Other pedestrians wearing face masks are walking in the distance

Open Streets are available daily, 8 am to 8 pm (unless otherwise noted) for pedestrians and cyclists to use the roadbed of the street while maintaining social distancing. Opening hours may vary by location due to NYPD staffing.

No through traffic permitted while Open Streets are in effect. Vehicle traffic is limited to local deliveries, pick-ups/drop-offs, necessary city service vehicles, utility vehicles and emergency vehicles only. When Alternate Side Parking regulations are in effect, drivers must move their vehicles from the street, and may return when ASP is over. These drivers are advised to be extremely cautious and to drive 5 MPH or slower.

Members of the public and organizations wishing to have other New York City streets considered for the Open Streets program may fill out an online survey. NYC DOT, NYPD and others will evaluate all suggestions for viability. If you have questions, please contact your NYC DOT Borough Commissioner's office.

The Open Streets initiative is a collaboration between the Mayor's office, NYC Council, NYPD, Parks, NYC DOT, BIDs and local community organizations.
