Citizen's group Vision 42 is proposing a plan that would completely shut down 42nd street to traffic, and build a light rail system that would span the width of Manhattan.

This year, New York City has experimented with closing sections of Broadway, transforming the usually busy thoroughfare into a relaxed pedestrian mall. The move dramatically changed the quality of living for area residents and walkers for the better (even if it was just temporary).

A similar plan is being proposed by citizen’s group Vision 42 that would completely shut down 42nd street to traffic, and build a light rail system that would span the width of Manhattan.

Local business are showing interest in this eco-friendly project, but the city government is showing hesitation.
