Join us for the annual celebration known as Summer Streets, a “take-over” of some of NYC’s most popular streets and neighborhoods. Traffic is redirected and locals and visitors alike have a chance to hit the pavement on their feet instead of on wheels. On three consecutive Saturdays in August, nearly seven miles of NYC’s streets are opened for people to play, run, walk and bike. During last years celebration, more than 300,000 people took to the “Summer Streets”. Families will enjoy fitness classes and showcases as well as sports activities and some celeb soccer demos so don’t miss it!
August 1st, August 8th and August 15th
Time: 7am – 1pm
Locations: from Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park, along Park Avenue and connecting streets
Ages: All ages welcome and designed for all ages and ability levels
FiDi Families Insiders: Join us at Centre Street and Lafayette at Foley Square for the water slide!
Summer Streets is a project of the New York City Department of Transportation.
