Prospect Park In Brooklyn Is Now Permanently Closed To Traffic

Beginning July 17, Prospect Park will begin a trial run of a car free park , the mayor and Department of Transportation officials said, extending a car ban that has been in effect on the west side of the park since 2015. The city is shutting down East Drive from Park Circle to Grand Army Plaza starting next Monday through the weekend after Labor Day. The move is meant to make the green space safer as it sees a rise in recreational use during the summer.
