To celebrate Earth Day next weekend, New York City is closing some of its streets to cars. As part of an annual event run by the city’s Department of Transportation, 30 blocks of Broadway from Times Square to Union Square will be closed on April 27 to allow pedestrians and cyclists to roam and ride free between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Along the nearly two-mile route, the city will offer some environmental programs and nonprofit organizations will be on-site to educate walkers about climate change and sustainability.
世界地球日訂於4月22日,州長柯謨趁此時機簽署了之前通過的紐約州全州購物塑料袋禁令,加之市議會剛剛通過的紙袋收費法,意味著從明年3月1日起消費者 在購物時將不能再得到商家提供的塑料袋,而如果要求商家提供紙袋必須加5分錢的費用。不過這並不是說塑料袋將就此絕跡,一些特定的塑料購物袋未被列入禁令 之內。


The amount of plastic that's been dumped into the ocean has been increasing, according to a new study , and the problem will probably get worse.

Mmuseumm (yes, the spelling is unusual) displays collections of small objects in a very small space. Its curator says they tell important stories.

As finishing touches are being put on the space before vendors move in, Untapped Cities got a sneak peek at the new market space and learned about its new features and design, and how the NYCEDC will support and encourage the growth of existing vendors making the shift, and preserve the history and culture of the longstanding market.

The City Council has approved a 5-cent charge on paper bags, making it harder to hide from the statewide ban on single-use plastic ones.

NY4P and the New York League of Conservation Voters are holding an Earth Month photo contest! Share pictures of your favorite park, playground, or other greenspace using the hashtag #PlayFair. Tell us what that park means to you and why it’s so important. Don’t forget to include the name of the park and what borough it’s in. The contest ends Monday, April 29, and the winner will be announced later that week.


Day of workshops featuring important life issues impacting Asian women and their communities. Learn from professionals and community leaders about: Asian American Identity, Professional Career Advancements and Resources, Pro Bono Clinic, Mental Health, Social Activism and more.


This five-part class begins with a focus on the iconic Jewish Lower East Side before following the migration of New York’s Jews – uptown and across the rivers. Most sessions will include walking; please wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.


In these ten sessions, explore the religious and cultural connections between Jews and Muslims of that period. This course is a continuation of our exploration of Jews and Muslims in history, but new participants are welcome!


Features a presentation of 2019 research on experiences, policies, and practices that impact Asian American women in the workplace from the Nielsen Corporation, keynote remarks by Tina Tchen, panel discussions, and an evening networking reception (5 - 6:30 pm).
