[WATCH] Much of NYC Went Car-Free for Earth Day, Here's What It Looked Like

This past Saturday was Earth Day, and like most cities around the globe, New York City celebrated in official capacity by shutting down major streets to automotive traffic throughout the City. In this video from our friends at StreetsBlog NYC, check out how the streets of New York City were reclaimed by cyclists and pedestrians.

This year for NYC's 2nd Car-Free NYC Earth Day, things picked up considerably from last year's inaugural event. The big spectacle was that you could walk or bike up Broadway from Union Square all the way to Times Square on car-free streets. But in a way since the Science March was already coming down Broadway to 47th street from the north, many people were able to traverse it all the way to Columbus Circle.
