Here Is This Year's List of Open Streets in Upper Manhattan—15 in All

W 120th Street between Lenox Avenue and Mt. Morris Park West remains an Open Street.

New York City just unveiled its latest list of Open Streets, a program now in its fifth year, including 15 car-free blocks in Upper Manhattan.

The Open Streets are the result of partnerships between the Department of Transportation and community organizations (such as block associations), educational institutions and merchant groups, which each year must apply to manage their locations.

Each have their own schedules, so be sure to check your nearest Open Street's specific days and hours here.

Hopefully private cars are banned in Manhattan within 10 years.
