New Year's Eve Weekend Street Closures

Motorists may want to avoid Midtown altogether.

Several streets will be closed in Times Square beginning Saturday afternoon in preparation for the Times Square New Year's Eve celebration, which is expected to draw record crowds.

Starting at about 3 p.m., Seventh Avenue and Broadway between 41st Street and 59th Street will be closed, including all cross streets.

Those streets will remain closed until about 3 a.m. on Sunday.

Lady Gaga is expected to join Mayor Bloomberg for the countdown to 2012, and police expect massive crowds.
