NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — If you’ve noticed sidewalks are getting more crowded across the Big Apple this year, it’s not your imagination.

The Department of Transportation sends teams to 50 locations around the city twice a year to gauge pedestrian volume. Officials at the DOT said the city’s sidewalks are more crowded this year than at any time in the part five years.

Since the creation of the Pedestrian Volume Index in 2007, sidewalks have seen an increase in pedestrian traffic of 13 percent.
