Summer Streets will be back this year, three Saturdays in August, 4th, 11th and the 18th. 7am-1pm…then it’s back to carbon polluting, business as usual.
A massive chunk of Manhattan streets get closed off to motor vehicle traffic and embarrassed by bikers, dancers, joggers and pedestrians.
It’s like what critical mass would be like if it were corporately funded.
The route will run from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park, up Park Ave in Manhattan.
Why not start things off with a ferry ride. I just got word that the NY Waterway Ferry will be waving it’s $1.25 surcharge during summer streets.
Hmmm, kind of a ridiculous fee, since bike riding should be encouraged…everyday, but maybe it’s a start.
