Attention motorists: It’s that time of year again, the General Assembly of the United Nations will take place in Manhattan from Sept. 13-26, 2016.
As dignitaries from around the world converge on the city, various streets on the East Side will be closed to accommodate travel around the United Nations building.
Unlike when a parade is in procession, these street closures will happen seemingly at random (at least to motorists they will), at different times of the day while the General Assembly is in session.
The following streets will be subject to closure by the NYPD between between Sept. 13 and Sept. 26, according to the city Department of Transportation.
FDR Drive between Whitehall Street and the Willis Avenue Bridge/Triborough Bridge.
Streets that are bordered by 60th Street on the north side, 34th Street on the south, First Avenue on the east and Madison Avenue on the west.
