Car-Free Streets

Summer Streets #3: Spending Spree Time?

smiling_on_bike.jpgThe first season of Summers Streets comes to a close with tomorrow's third installment. Unlike last week, the sunshine is not in doubt. And whether the set-up separates bikes and peds or lets everyone mingle together, at least one other thing is for sure: This is your last chance to walk and bike car-free in the middle of Manhattan until 2009.

Here's my plan. At some point during the morning, I'm going to stroll over to First Custom Corp. and get measured for a new suit. A good friend is getting married this October and I need to find something in navy for the ceremony.

Anyone else interested in some car-free shopping
