Summer Streets is an annual celebration of New York City's most valuable public space—our streets.Summer Streets provides space for healthy recreation and encourages New Yorkers to use more sustainable forms of transportation. In 2013, more than 300,000 people took advantage of the open 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 extends from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park, along Park Avenue and connecting streets, with easy access from all points in New York City.
Summer Streets is a project of the New York City Department of Transportation.
