On 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. The route runs from Brooklyn Bridge, along Lafayette Street and Park Avenue, to Central Park at East 72nd Street and Fifth Avenue. View the Summer Streets map route

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.

Passersby are weclome to participate in arts and crafts workshops, listen to musical performances, learn to salsa dance, eat healthy snacks, climb a 25' climbing wall, soar through the sky on a 160' zipline and explore a 179 years voice tunnel. View Summer Streets' schedule of activities

Summer Streets is a project of the New York City Department of Transportation.
