What’s Good for the Naked Cowboy Is Good for NYC

dnpoll.jpgFor today's analysis of the city's plan to pedestrianize Broadway at Times Square, the Daily News enlisted such experts as "an upper West Side attorney who thinks the diversion will be 'too overwhelming'" and "a Long Island resident who often drives to the area [and] considers the change 'a nightmare' that will 'make traffic worse.'" Fortunately, they also called on the Naked Cowboy:

"The cars aren't adding anything, they're just driving by," he said, adding he'd "be able to serve twice as many people." 

The News is running an online poll on the changes planned for Broadway (which, of course, aren't limited to Times Square). As of this writing the pro-pedestrians are ahead. Don't miss your chance to weigh in.
