Columbus Avenue CLOSED

Columbus Avenue from 68th to 77th Streets will be closed to traffic from 10 am to 9 pm on Sundays starting August 29 until (at least) November 14 as part of the city’s Open Streets program.

* No parking on that section of Columbus. 

* The two Columbus Ave. buses will be rerouted to Central Park West. 

This isn't a street fair with vendors. It just closes the avenue to cars and trucks to allow people to leave the sidewalks and wander around that section of the avenue, with the expectation that some restaurants will extend their seating into the street.

Bicycles (and probably scooters and motorized bikes) will be allowed – just watch out for the speeding bikes in the bike lane; there have been several accidents.
