7. Exit 6 on the FDR Drive Has Been Closed Since September 11

Following September 11, exit 6 on the FDR Drive has born a “closed” sign, and for over ten years, drivers have wondered whether the exit would be reopened. The exit was closed “due to security reasons,” but another reason is that the exit is located near a Con Edison substation that controls much of lower Manhattan’s electricity. According to an article from NBC, the Department of Transportation said that they were planning to “possibly remove the signs” in 2013. According to Con Edison, there are no plans to reopen the exit.
