Summer Streets is Almost Here Again!

Summer Streets 2016

On the first three consecutive Saturdays in August, nearly seven miles of New York City’s streets are opened to the public to play, run, walk and bike. Learn more

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 2015, nearly 300,000 people took advantage of the open streets. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, August 6, 13 and 20 between the hours of 7 am and 1 pm.

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, allowing participants to plan a trip as long or short as they wish. All activities at Summer Streets are free of charge, and designed for people of all ages and ability levels to share the streets respectfully.

Check out the activities here!

The nearly 300-foot water slide will be at Vita Coco Beach in Foley Square (111 Worth St.), and you can register now for a time slot this Saturday (make sure to arrive at least half an hour early). Or mark your calendar: Time slots for Aug. 13 open on Aug. 8, and for Aug. 20 on Aug. 15. Once you've taken your turn, relax in a hammock in the (real!) sand on the beach below, or play a round of cornhole. 

Be sure to stop by one of these Citi Vending machines and see what you win by using your social media!

See if you can beat the Olympics record times by running the track and see how you compare in time!

Happy Summer Streets - Have fun!
