Car-Free Streets

Summer Streets, When Park Avenue Earns Its Name, Starts Tomorrow

Get ready to stretch out your legs, New York City. The fourth annual Summer Streets starts tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m. -- the first of three car-free Saturdays on Park Avenue.

Last year's dumpster pools are gone, replaced with a climbing wall, sand sculptures and New York City sports legends. Sure to remain are crowds of people eager to break out from narrow sidewalks and traffic-clogged streets and use the full width of Park Avenue for walking, biking, rollerblading, playing and relaxing.

The details, including a map of the Park Avenue route and the location of rest stops and activities, can be found on the Department of Transportation's website.
