Weekend Walks are multi-block, multi-day events on commercial corridors that promote the use of streets as public space. Community based organizations apply to close commercial streets to vehicles and provide programming that highlights local businesses and New York Cityâ€™s unique neighborhoods.
Business improvement districts, cultural organizations, local merchants associations and community groups apply to host Weekend Walks as a fun way to highlight local businesses and neighborhood resources. They create wonderful opportunities for New Yorkers to gather and explore their neighborhoods in a new way. All events are free and open to the public, and feature car-free, family-friendly activities and active lifestyle programming to connect communities.
NYCDOT is embarking on the 12th season of Weekend Walks. Learn more about hosting a Weekend Walks event.
