Summer Streets Returns, Closing Park Ave. Next 3 Saturdays


This year’s Summer Streets dates approach: as was done last year, on three consecutive Saturdays, August 8, 15, and 22, Park Avenue and some connecting streets will be closed to motorized traffic from Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., and citizens encouraged to walk, bike, rollerblade, or whatever. Transportation Alternatives will lead “feeder rides” to Park Avenue from Grand Army Plaza, Woodlawn, Inwood, and Astoria Park, and makers of the Dutch NY400 bikes will loan them out onsite. Not to be outdone, Staten Island will shut down Van Duzer Street in Stapleton between Beach and Wright Streets on the same days from noon to 8 p.m.
