The NYPD and the Times Square Business Improvement District (TS-BID) have issued a traffic alert for Wednesday, May 17, beginning at 6 PM. At that time, Presidential candidate and Texas Gov. George W. Bush will be at the Sheraton New York (Seventh Avenue and 52nd Street) for a fundraiser. Heavy traffic delays are expected in that area, which could affect traffic in the theatre district. Theatre patrons may wish to adjust their travel plans accordingly.
