Say Goodbye to Times Square Traffic Shots

If you've always wanted to photograph streaks of traffic whirring through Times Square in New York, you've missed your chance: the city has announced that the stretch of Broadway from 42nd Street to 47th Street is now a pedestrians-only mall. Personally I'll miss the colorful and chaotic parade of traffic winding (sometimes whipping) through Times Square, but I'll feel much safer not having to dodge cabs and SUV's when I'm shooting.

So if you have any old photos of traffic in that area, they're historic now so take good care of them! Hopefully having the traffic gone will make it easier to photograph the ever-growing glitter of the Neon Canyon--and without breathing all of those emissions!
