NEW YORK (WABC) -- New Yorkers were encouraged to leave their cars at home and to walk or bike the city's streets instead Saturday as part of Car Free Earth Day.
The annual event is meant to promote activism and education surrounding climate change, sustainability and other relevant topics.
The event took place throughout the five boroughs, connecting over 100 Open Streets, 22 plazas, and accessing 1,000+ miles of the city's bike network.
New York City's Open Streets program transforms streets into public space open to all to enjoy car-free activities.
