Summer Streets August 3 – August 17, Park Ave. from Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park, Manhattan, NY. It’s hard to imagine New York City’s streets without the sight of traffic and sounds of honking horns. But for three Saturdays in August, New Yorkers get a respite from the busy blocks, along with an open invitation to play, dance, ride a bike and participate in a slew of summertime activities. The route spans Lafayette Street and Park Avenue, from the Brooklyn Bridge all the way to Central Park at 72nd Street. A series of rest stops along the car-free path will feature games, snacks and even a rock-climbing wall and zip line. New this year is an interactive installation by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer where sounds and lights inside the Park Avenue Tunnel are triggered by participants. nyc.gov.
