Our lovely Transportation Commissioner Janet Sadik-Khan recently announced that Summer Streets will be back for three weekends in August. This means that seven miles of Manhattan streets will be a car free paradise for cyclists and pedestrians.
NYC DOT and its partners are proud to present Summer Streets. This summer, for the fourth year in a row, Summer Streets will temporarily close Park Avenue and connecting streets from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park to motor vehicles and open it up to people on three consecutive Saturdays in August (August 6, 13, & 20).
Check it out. Bring your bike. These make great rides for everyone.
