Consider yourselves warned. @GridlockSam, our favorite source of New York City traffic information, calls today "the gridlock alert day of the decade."
It's going to be a traffic nightmare today as President Barack Obama is in town for three fundraisers, coinciding with the annual lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.
Obama is landing at JFK around 5 p.m., choppering in Marine One to Wall Street, and then attending three events in Greenwich Village, the Upper East Side, and West Midtown. Each neighborhood will be subject to a traffic freeze while the President is on the move. Plus, the area around Rockefeller Center will begin to be shut down around 4 p.m. for the tree lighting at 7 p.m.
In short, it's going to be a madhouse.

If going to the tree lighting in NYC, use public transit.

I wonder how many of these donors are recipients of government largesse, stimulus and “loans” that never et paid back??
I would never try to drive in Manhattan. OK, I did once but never again.
With a wife born & bred in Brooklyn...it’s the subway for me!
Is he gonna make a lap around Zuccotti Park?
The idiot "poor" just aren't bright enough to ever figure it out.
he keeps doing this in Los Angeles too, with his motorcade blocking horrendous traffic and causing huge issues for people just traveling to work or working on the road. He does not care about the average citizen it is all about him.
No sympathy for NYC WHATSOEVAH!!!!
They voted for the POS and all he stands for...
(Same goes for LA...)
I’m with you - I don’t ever drive in Manhattan. :-))
Ha! Ha!....that’s it libtards!...Flush your money down the Obama toilet!
I drive in Manhattan. As long as you ignore all your instincts for survival and ignore all the rules of the road, you’ll be alright.
And it’s a lot better than driving in Palermo which I was once forced to do.
