Loud, Honking Cabs Beware: 'Summer Streets' Are Taking Over NYC Today
If you're watching this video, we hope you have a huge smile on your face. If you're a cab driver who hates traffic, you might not. But, for the rest of us pedestrian folk, today is a great day to have feet.
For the next three Saturdays, the New York City Department of Transportation is bringing back the fifth annual 'Summer Streets' program. In it, the City closes down major thoroughfares for bikers, walkers and all New Yorkers alike to stroll down without worrying about getting hit by that sedan going 50 miles per hour.
With seven miles of road closed off for play time, this 'Summer Streets' is shaping up to be the biggest so far. In other words, there will be so much room for activities.
