For a New York minute, closing streets in the summer


When space is at a premium, doing something special sometimes meaning breaking norms and doing something different. For New York, that means closing down an extended section of Park Avenue and related streets from Central Park down to the Brooklyn Bridge and offering a “Summer Streets” initiative.

Various activities are planned, as well as the ability for people to walk or bike down the storied thoroughfare. All events are free, allowing for a ton of inexpensive summer entertainment. The full map is below, and the event takes place on three consecutive Saturdays, starting tomorrow.
