The United Nations is in town which means driving around Manhattan is about to be scarier than last night’s premiere of American Horror Story. 

The General Assembly began on Tuesday afternoon and will last until September 26. Luckily, this year’s event won’t be coinciding with a visit from Pope Francis and a free Beyoncé concert in Central Park so we won’t be dealing with another #trafficpocalypse at least.

The NYPD has announced that the following streets will be subject to closure until the General Assembly wraps up next Friday. You can see the areas shaded in the map below which will be closed subject to the NYPD's discretion.

Areas bounded by:

  • 60th Street on the North
