How Do You Summer Street?

Planning to do something fun this Saturday at Summer Streets? Let us know! 

We’d like to help facilitate the planning of ad-hoc events along the
route. Did you realize that most of the side streets adjacent to the
route are also closed? So there’s plenty of room to, say, organize a game of stickball

We’ve started a Livable Streets Group: "Summer Streets 2008."  There’s a discussion going there, so join the group, sign up for the mailing list and toss around ideas with other readers, or post ideas for activities on the wiki.

If, for example, you’re interested in stickballing with TOPP staff and Streetsblog editors, meet at Union Square by the Gandhi Statue at 10 a.m.   We’ve also heard of demand for more kids activities, so if you know of anything, add it to the list.

We hope to see you out there!
