It’s that time of year – for NEW YORK CITY SUMMER STREETS! What is Summer Streets you ask? Well I’ll tell you! The first 3 Saturdays in August they close 7 miles of city streets from 72nd St near Central Park at Park Ave all the way down to Lafayette St and Centre St at the Brooklyn Bridge. A few of the cross streets are still open and they have police and volunteers directing people when it’s safe to continue running, cycling or rollerblading the miles of car free bliss!
I went last year by myself and had so much fun my sister decided to join me this year.
