Berry Street between North 12th Street and Broadway, stretching nearly a mile, will be managed by the local police precinct.

So will South 9th Street between Berry Street and Driggs Avenue, a 0.17-mile area, and Grand Street between Roebling Street and Marcy Avenue, covering 0.16 miles.

At McCarren Park, Nassau Avenue between Banker Street and Lorimer Street, covering 0.14 miles, will be closed off to cars.
