My group (should you decide to join Katayoun

Kick off with a rally on Central Park West at 62nd St at 10:30 am. The rally is expected to last one hour. Once the rally is over, it will be time for all New Yorkers to proudly march together showing their love and support for science!

March Route 🗺
Our route will encompass Central Park West from 72nd St, proceed to Broadway via Columbus Circle, and finish at 52nd St & Broadway. We have been working closely with NYPD to choose a route length that will allow everyone to have enough space, based on how many registered marchers we have. If you haven’t registered, please do so here (http://donyc.com/marchforscience) so we will be able to expand our route if needed, before April 22.

Entry & Exit Points 📍
All marchers will need to enter Central Park West from the west side. You will not be able to enter from Central Park. Once you are on CPW, if you would like to leave the march and go into Central Park, you will be able to. You just aren’t able to (re)enter coming from the park.
Not all side streets will give marchers access to Central Park West, so please enter from Columbus Ave or Broadway via 61st, 64th, 68th, and 72nd streets. As our crowds grow in size, the NYPD will begin to close off southern entrances, beginning with 61st St, and will continue to close them moving north as needed. We will have volunteers out on Broadway to help you know where to go.
