The Big “Green” Apple

If you've ever been to Times Square in NYC you're familiar with the bumper to bumper traffic and wall to wall people that characterizes this highly touristy area.  Last month, as part of an initiative for the Big Apple to be more green, the city did something very interesting.  Traffic in the streets was replaced with lawn chairs making the other side of the street much more accessible for pedestrians and cyclists.  That's right, instead of cars and buses, you can take a load off right in the street in the heart of the city.

What does this mean for us?  Easier access to our two LIDS stores in the area because you no longer have to worry about traffic when crossing the street.  If you happen to live near Times Square or simply visiting, be sure to check out either location.  The LIDS on 42nd Street has one of the best selections of headwear in the world!
