Most cars and trucks will be barred from Manhattan below 96th Street when New York City’s curfew begins at 8 p.m. Tuesday night, the NYPD announced.
“At 8pm tonight when the #curfew begins in #NYC, there will be NO vehicular traffic allowed south of 96th Street in Manhattan — with the exception of residents, essential workers, busses (sic), and truck deliveries,” NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan tweeted.
The announcement comes after the city saw widespread looting Monday night. It was not immediately clear how the traffic ban would be enforced.
