The biggest production on Broadway this summer won't be in a theater. Rather, the show will be out in the street, starring the road itself. New York City is shutting down two swathes of the Great White Way to automobile traffic, turning the asphalt where it criss-crosses Times Square and Herald Square completely over to pedestrians and bicyclists.
Can't fathom the thought of shutting down Broadway? The following slideshow will help visualize the new Great White Way can be. For more information, read "The Great White Right of Way" in the June 2009 issue of GOVERNING.
