When the Circus Comes to Town

NYCDOT - Weekly Traffic Advisory:
Elephant Walk: There will be closures on Tuesday, March 16 from 11:15 p.m. to Wednesday March 17 at 1:00 a.m. at the following locations:
Route: Through the north tube of the Midtown Tunnel; Exit Midtown Tunnel at 34th Street; West on 34th Street to 7th Avenue; South on 7th Avenue to 33rd Street; West on 33rd Street into Madison Square Garden.
End: Madison Square Garden."
"It was 12:35am when the elephants finally emerged from the Midtown Tunnel, but the crowd still went wild- cheering, yelling, clapping, blasting circus music. Nick and I took a couple of shots at the entrance to the tunnel, then ran around the corner with the rest of the mob, and snapped a few more as the elephants came up 34th Street. Definitely one of those classic New York experiences not to missed!"
