Earth Day New York will host a so-called “runway show” of green vehicles at the Crossroads of the World Friday, the 41st anniversary of Earth Day. Along with live entertainment, the happenings will feature an interactive exhibit highlighting the city’s green businesses, and non-profit organizations with environmentally-friendly initiatives.
