Summer Streets is an annual celebration of New York City’s most valuable public space—our streets. On three consecutive Saturdays in August, nearly seven miles of NYC’s streets are opened for people to play, run, walk and bike. Summer Streets provides space for healthy recreation and encourages New Yorkers to use more sustainable forms of transportation. In 2015, nearly 300,000 people took advantage of the open streets.
Between 7am and 1pm, zip-line, water slide, and dance to your hearts content from Park Avenue on the Upper East Side to Lafayette Street through City Hall. Check the events page for more information about Summer Streets.
