On Wednesday May 13th Mayor Bill de Blasio and the NYCDOT closed twelve miles of NYC streets so people could walk in the streets. One such street that was closed was Rhinelander Avenue in the Bronx from Williamsbridge Road to Bronxdale Avenue for the entire half mile portion of the roadway
Looking across Rhinelander Avenue from Williamsbridge Road one can see police barriers set up, but not fully across the road as cars and trucks continued to travel on Rhinelander Avenue, while there were no people taking advantage of the closed street to use it to walk.
