Residents approve of less cars in Prospect Park

Outdoor enthusiasts are taking advantage of the fact that there are now less cars in Prospect Park.



Last month, New York City officials closed off West Drive to drivers to encourage New Yorkers to be more active. It was previously open for two hours in the afternoon.



The New York City Department of Transportation says that it is looking at ways to open up the park more.



East Drive in the park is still open to cars Monday through Friday mornings.
