Bloomies Follies #435 as New Yorkers prepare for car-free Times Square

This gem of an experiment was pushed through without those who live and work in the area getting to respond to how it will affect their businesses and the side streets: "No Term-Limits for me Bloomberg" is at again.

New Yorkers prepare for car-free Times Square

NEW YORK (AP) -- Opening now on Broadway: Pedestrian malls at Times Square and Herald Square.

As part of a Department of Transportation plan to make the city more livable, cars will be banned from stretches of Broadway at Times Square and at Herald Square.

The city believes the move will reduce pollution, cut down on pedestrian accidents and help traffic flow more smoothly.

The Department of Transportation says the barriers were fully in place sometime before 8 p.m. Sunday.
