Car Free NYC expansion in talks for Earth Day 2017

Car Free NYC, and event helf on Earth Day to promote environmentally friendly transit options, will expand in 2017 if city officials get their way. 

Manhattan Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez joined Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and advocates at a kick-off rally Tuesday to drum up support for the second year of Rodriguez’s initiative to get New Yorkers out of their private vehicles.

Rodriguez’s office said it is in discussions with the city’s Department of Transportation to plan street closures for Earth Day, April 22, which falls on a Saturday.
