NYC DOT presents Summer Streets 2010, when New York City stops vehicle traffic on Park Avenue and connecting streets from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park, opening it up to pedestrians and bikes. There are two more Saturdays left, August 14th and 21st, from 7am-1pm. The Dumpster Pools will be open during Summer Streets.
This event takes a valuable public space – our City’s streets – and opens them up to people to play, walk, bike, and breathe. Summer Streets provides more space for healthy recreation and is a part of NYC’s greening initiative by encouraging New Yorkers to use more sustainable forms of transportation.
