Summer Streets is an annual celebration of New York City’s streets, presented by the New York City Department of Transportation. On three consecutive Saturdays in August, nearly seven miles of NYC's streets are opened for people to play, run, walk and bike. Summer Streets provides space for healthy recreation and encourages New Yorkers to use more sustainable forms of transportation.
Held between 7:00 am to 1:00 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.
Events will be held at and near parks throughout the city. At Foley Square, you can Slide The City on a 270-foot water slide. Please visit the Slide The City page to pre-register. For a complete list of activities, please visit DOT's Summer Streets page.
The Summer Streets route extends from 72nd Street to the Brooklyn Bridge, along Park Avenue and Lafayette Street.
