NEW YORK – MAY 26: People sit in lounge chairs on Broadway in Times Square after it was converted to a pedestrian zone May 26, 2009 in New York City. Sections of Broadway that pass through Times Square and Herald Square have been closed to vehicles in an effort by the city to reduce traffic and pollution while giving pedestrians more space.
