Mayor Bloomberg Proposes Tourist Lanes on City Sidewalks

Jump to last reply

Building on the popular success of the bicycle lanes now crossing the city, Mayor Bloomberg announced the creation of "Tourist Lanes" on some of the city's more crowded sidewalks. Accordingly, Fifth Avenue, SoHo, the West Village and parts of the Upper West Side will have clearly marked lanes dividing local and sight-seeing traffic. There will be no need to divide Times Square sidewalks, as they are resident-free already.
