More than 3,000 triathletes competed in the 12th Annual Aquaphor New York City Triathlon, and a commuter alert was in effect on Sunday for people traveling on the west side of Manhattan.
Nearly seven miles of Manhattan streets, from Park Avenue at 72nd Street down to Washington Square Park all the way down to the Brooklyn Bridge, were shut down to traffic Saturday for this year’s first Summer Streets event.
City inspectors ruled Friday night that an electronic billboard on the Upper West Side is illegal, much to the relief of many neighborhood residents.
Some residents on the Upper West Side say their homes are being invaded by flashing lights, and they can’t turn them off. The bright light battle began with this week’s grand opening of a chain drug store.
