TOMORROW: Summer Streets NYC
On three Saturdays every August, New York City closes Park Avenue from the Upper East Side to the Brooklyn Bridge for the exclusive enjoyment of bicyclists, joggers, and pedestrians. There are hundreds of vendors on the side streets, free bike repair stations, promotional giveaways, and live music all along the route. Later in the day there will be free concerts at Central Park's Summer Stage. Summer Streets runs from 7am until 1pm and we've learned that the return trip can be arduous if you don't finish before the streets have reopened. Highly recommended. It's like Critical Mass minus the assholes.
