Times Square Goes Green
Imagine breaking out the ol' lawnchair and setting up camp in the middle of Broadway and 42nd Street. What was once a ridiculous thought is now becoming a NYC reality. Closing itself off from vehicles yesterday, Times Square became a five-block-long pedestrian mall, with New Yorkers and tourists alike taking advantage of the good weather by laying in the middle of the road, literally. Piazza San Marco it isn't, true, but over time, this pedestrian center could develop into something that we couldn't imagine living without.
