Street Closures for September 11, 2009
(as of September 4, 2009)
Due to September 11th commemoration events over the next week, the city will be implementing street, bridge, park, and sidewalk closures to accommodate pedestrian traffic downtown.
The city’s ceremony will take place in Zuccotti Park, at Broadway and Liberty Street, beginning at 6:30 a.m.
Because vehicle and pedestrian access in the immediate area of Zuccotti Park will be very limited, Lower Manhattan residents, employees are advised to use public transportation whenever possible to stations outside of the event area.
