Times Square pedestrian mall opens
As far as I'm concerned, Sunday's opening of the Times Square pedestrian mall was a Grand Slam for New York City. We walked up there on Sunday to check it out and liked what we saw. The lawn chairs, people chilaxing, live bands performing, it all had a very airy, festive vibe. I will no longer dread all the overcrowded sidewalks filled with slow tourists walking three and four abreast. Indeed, I look forward to seeing what they do with it, and I hope it remains permanent. Now, if we could just get the High Line opened in the next few weeks.
