114th Street between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and Manhattan Avenue

As of this weekend, four more Harlem streets are open to pedestrians and cyclists during the day (8am-8pm, unless otherwise noted), joining the three that closed to traffic last week.

They are all part of Mayor de Blasio's recently announced open streets plan, which aims to make as many as 100 miles of roadway accessible to New Yorkers for safe recreation during the lockdown.

Here are the newest, from south to north:

• Morningside Avenue between Manhattan Avenue and 116th Street

• 117th Street between Fifth and Morningside Avenues

• 138th Street between Malcolm X and Adam Clayton Powell Jr Boulevards

• 143rd Street between Fifth Ave and Malcolm X Boulevard


These three opened last week:

• 114th Street between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and Manhattan Avenue

• 115th Street between Third and Park Avenues, open 2pm-5:30pm weekdays

• Edgecombe Avenue between 145th Street and St. Nicholas Place (more or less 155th Street)


And these three streets opened in Washington Heights and Inwood earlier this month:

• Laurel Hill Terrace between Amsterdam Avenue near 182nd Street and Amsterdam Avenue and 188th Street

•Margaret Corbin Drive between Fort Washington Avenue and Cabrini Boulevard (inside Fort Tryon Park)

• Dyckman Street between Broadway and Seaman Avenue
