The midtown traffic snarl in the interest of diplomatic security begins tonight. Take the following information into account if you are planning on catching a cab, bus, or ride of any sort during the next several days.
- 1st Ave. is closed to vehicle traffic as of right now and will remain so for several days.
- 44th - 46th Sts. are closed between 1st and 2nd Aves.
- Full breakdown of the day-by-day street closings are outlined here.
We recommend avoiding the FDR until after Wednesday, as it will be closed during the day whenever the General Assembly is in session. Everything goes back to normal midtown traffic chaos on Thursday.
