New York City Police Department Announces Recommendations For Participants In Saturday’s Peace March.

United for Peace and Justice has been issued a permit for a march and demonstration this Saturday, April 29. Participants who want to be near the front of the march should arrive early and approach Broadway from cross-town streets between 18th and 22nd Streets.

The march is scheduled to step off on Broadway at Union Square at Noon, Saturday, April 29, and proceed south on Union Square East into Broadway and on to Worth Street, where the march will turn east to Foley Square.

In addition to closing the main march route to vehicular traffic, the New York City Police Department will close to vehicular traffic the side streets between 17th Street and 22nd Street, between Park Avenue South and 7th Avenue. These side streets will be reserved as feeder lines into the main march down Broadway. The organizers are expected to assign groups that want to march together to specific side streets.

Again, the best bet is to enter Broadway from the feeder streets, 18th to 22nd Streets from Park Avenue South on the east and 7th Avenue on the west.

Another best bet: To avoid congestion at the 14th Street subway stops, go to the 23rd Street subway stations or subway stations farther north and get to the feeder streets from there.

Charter buses will drop participants on the west side of 7th Avenue between 18th and 22nd Streets. Once emptied of passengers, the charter buses will proceed to the pickup locations near the march’s terminus. After the march, returning passengers will find their charter buses parked on both sides of Church Street between Worth Street and White Street and the east side of 6th Avenue between Church Street and Canal Street.

Reminder: Signs may be carried on cardboard poles, but no wood or metal is permitted.
