NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Folks walking around Manhattan probably noticed fewer cars on the streets on Saturday.

The third annual “Car Free NYC’ day will descend on the Big Apple. No cars will be allowed on Broadway between Union Square and Times Square from 9am to 3pm.

In a part of New York normally filled with car fumes and noise, music and dance mixed with fitness classes and educational activities about a sustainable, healthy environment.

In addition to car-free Broadway, the city closed down parts of St. Nicholas Avenue in Harlem, Montague Street in Brooklyn, Shore Boulevard and Woodside Avenue in Queens, and Eagle Avenue in the Bronx.
