Summer Streets

Here's an opportunity for walkers and cyclists to take over Manhattan's main streets. A 6.9 mile length of streets from Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park will be closed to traffic for three consecutive Saturdays (August 9th, 16th and 23rd) from 7:00 am - 1:00 pm. Fitness, dance and yoga classes will be held along the route, with additional activities hosted by community groups at various streets.
