Oh God Traffic Hell is Back Expect Grid Lock and Street Lock Down Thanks to The UN and The President

Heavy security and traffic closures will happen all across New York City this week to accommodate Trump and other visiting leaders. The NYPD, Secret Service and FBI have enhanced security measures in place for the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly, which begins Monday and runs through October 1.

During the General Assembly, New York City will host about 200 dignitaries from around the world. President Trump will deliver an address on Tuesday and he is in town until that night.

Officials said 48 Department of Sanitation sand trucks will be deployed with hundreds of additional blocker vehicles, along with 230 pieces of concrete block, 96 jersey barriers, and 7 surface-mounted delta vehicle barriers at potentially sensitive locations, which means stay away from 5th Avenue from 57th to 42nd if you are traveling.

Alternatives, including public transportation, bike sharing, ride sharing and parking outside of Manhattan, are strongly encouraged.
