Hundreds of people walked up the road, shouting chants like “Justice for Breonna Taylor.”

The city sent out an alert:

“Due to protest activity, expect traffic delays, road closures and a heavy presence of emergency personnel near the West Side Highway and 59th Street in Manhattan. Consider alternate routes and allow for additional travel time.”

The march then turned into the UWS at 79th Street, marching to Central Park.
