GRIDLOCK SAM: Expect traffic delays with the Yankees in post-season play

New York Daily News 5 days ago

Sunday, October 13 - Saturday, October 19,


The Boys are Back in Town! The Yanks have waited two years to show the Astros who’s best in the American League and the League Championship Series moves to the Bronx 4 p.m. Tuesday, 8 p.m. Wednesday, and if necessary, 8 p.m. Thursday. The 4, D, and Metro-North will all be better bets than the Deegan, Cross Bronx, and Bruckner.

Midtown Alert Monday! Aside from government employees most businesses will be open in Midtown as the Columbus Day Parade is held on Fifth Ave. from 79th St. to 42nd St. from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The 65th street transverse will be closed adding to the pressure on the Upper East Side. Buses will be rerouted mostly to Lexington Ave. There is also a Hispanic version of the parade being held today on Fifth from 72nd to 42nd 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Also Sunday:

* The Bronx Columbus Day Parade is on Morris Park Ave. from White Plains Rd. to Williamsbridge Road 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

* The Jets and Cowboys play 4:25 p.m. at MetLife, affecting the Lincoln Tunnel, GW Bridge, the NJ Turnpike, and Rtes. 3 and 495.

* The Staten Island Half Marathon 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. will close the Staten Island Expressway’s Lily Pond and Bay St. exits, and many streets including parts of McClean Ave. and Father Capodanno Blvd. Stay calm, it’ll only be an emergency drill at the Staten Island Mall 4 p.m. to just after midnight.

* There may be traffic turbulence on the West Side Highway near W. 10th St. 8:30 a.m. to noon for a Family for Safe Streets walk on the greenway.

Subways are on weekday schedule Monday.

There’s NHL action on Long Island and New Jersey Monday with face-offs at 1 p.m. at both the Nassau Coliseum and Prudential Center in Newark as the Islanders take on the Blues and the Devils face the Panthers

Madison Square Garden has five 8 p.m. events this week: Sara Bareilles Sunday, Post Malone Monday and Tuesday, and Knicks preseason Wednesday and Friday.

Another Midtown alert for Thursday. The Al Smith Dinner is being held at the Hilton, Sixth Ave. and 54th St., 6:30 p.m. The dinner, in the past, has drawn presidents and candidates. While none are confirmed as of this writing (as far as I know) expect some turbulence in the area during the evening. Sixth Ave., 53rd and 54th streets will be most affected.
