Doug Gordon (former Ask Gothamist contributor) put almost 10 minutes worth of footage of cars entering Prospect Park after 7PM, when it's supposed to be closed to traffic, on YouTube. StreetFilms' Clarence Eckerson Jr. edited it down and added a counter of how many cars actually enter over a 15 minute period - you can see that video above. We can't decide what makes us more crazed: The cars that try to squeeze through barriers that an irate bicyclist decided to drag over or the horrible left turns cars make into the park.
Doug says he decided to film "after one too many close encounters with cars in Prospect Park." Here's more information about Transportation Alternatives' Car Free Prospect Park Campaign. And the city is considering a car-free Central Park ban trial this summer.
