Obviously cars don't disappear, because they aren't magic. The silly wording is intended to point out the silliness on the other side (motorists still go to the same place the same way).
But you can't assume that economic activity is lowered. People might still make the same number of purchases on fewer trips. Maybe they shop elsewhere.
Now the question becomes: how are areas doing economically, 20+ years after they take out that road? Washington Square Park. The West Side. The San Francisco waterfront. How are those places faring?
