car free times square

car free times square Lawn chairs and people scattered in the middle of street where Broadway runs through Times Square.  This area's been turned into a "car free" zone.   Cars can still drive on the 7th Ave part that runs through Times Square, but Broadway is just for the peaple.  Checked it out this weekend for myself and even sat in one of the lawn chairs for a little bit.  Moving around Times Square is definitely easier now that the crowds aren't stuck to just using the sidewalks.
