Since July 4th falls on a Saturday, today is a federal holiday. Government offices are closed, and most post offices are closed—the Farley Post Office at 8th Avenue and 32nd Street is open. Sunday parking rules are in effect and while there will be sanitation "pickups, street cleaning and recycling on Friday," there won't be any on Saturday according to the NY Times. Also, the subways are running on a Saturday schedule, while city buses are running on a Sunday one—and Metro-North and Long Island Rail Road are on a regular weekday schedule. Many businesses are giving employees the day off—are you taking it easy today?
Happy July 4th Eve!
