Watch Out for Gridlock

Expect gridlock on these 8 dates.


Most New Yorkers are sharp enough to know that the days before Thanksgiving and Christmas mean heavy traffic. In case you're new around town, The Department of Transportation has issued an advisory of several more days between Thanksgiving and Christmas that constitute 'Gridlock Alert Days.' Counterintuitively, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are not included on the list.

The city encourages the use of mass transit on the following days:


  • Wednesday, November 23
  • Wednesday, November 30
  • Friday, December 9
  • Thursday, December 15
  • Friday, December 16
