Car Free Earth Day (Broadway)

Car Free Earth Day Background

Car Free Earth Day is an annual car-free event, which will be held this year on Saturday, April 21st, the day before Earth Day. The Event opens thirty blocks of Broadway from Times Square to Union Square for people to explore on foot during event hours, 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Programming is presented at five rest stops: Times Square (42nd Street and Broadway), Herald Square (34th Street and Broadway), Garment (39th Street and Broadway), Flatiron (23rd Street and Broadway), and Union Square (17th Street and Broadway). Environmental programming is offered by City agencies and nonprofit organizations along the route to promote activism and education surrounding climate change, sustainability and other relevant topics.
