City puts a bow on 5th Avenue Open Streets for the holiday season, as mayor touts boon for businesses

That’s a wrap for the 2023 holiday season Open Streets in Midtown Manhattan, as Mayor Eric Adams celebrated the program’s conclusion Sunday despite rainy conditions.

Last year’s inaugural open streets program during the most wonderful time of the year proved successful for businesses along the 5th Avenue corridor, the mayor noted, as businesses reported an additional $3 million in revenue.
