quick question for nyc riders...daneil

I was up around central park last night around 7 and it looked like the roads were closed to cars. Lots of bikes and runners on the road. i'm just wondering when and where the park is closed to traffic. I know it's all closed on the weekends, but are the inner roads closed all week, or just after a certain time? Thanks alot.

I don't really know the rules, but it seems closed for about 1.5 hours every night, from around 7 to maybe 8:30.

Petty much open to rush hour traffic. Some creeps sneak in after 7 but don't let them speed over you or intimidate you by honking their horns. Hold your ground and make 'em go slow. Unless their undercover cops or something. ; )

"Weekdays: 10:00am to 3:00pm and 7:00pm to 10:00pm except for the drive from the Sixth Avenue entrance to East 72nd Street which is open from 10:00am to 3:00pm but closed from 7:00pm to 10:00pm
Weekends: 7:00pm Friday – 6:00am Monday
Holidays: 7:00pm the night before to 6:00am the day after.
Weekly closings are suspended from Monday before Thanksgiving until New Years Day."

The Transportation Alternatives website has information on how you can do more to ban private cars altogether.
