At least 40 miles of New York City streets, and possibly as many as 100, will be shut down to traffic over the next month in response to the coronavirus crisis, Mayor de Blasio, City Council Speaker Corey Johnson (D-Manhattan) and other officials announced Monday.
The goal is to provide essential workers with safer commuting options and give people “outdoor opportunities” and “the chance to play outside the four walls of their home,” Councilwoman Carlina Rivera (D-Manhattan) said in an email from Johnson’s office announcing the move.
