Photos From Year Five of Summer Streets

Thanks to reader Jeff Prant for sending in these pics from the Midtown section of Saturday's Summer Streets installment. I caught the tail end of the event, and turnout seemed as strong as ever.

If the forecast holds, it looks like this Saturday will be less hot and muggy. Which is good, because I think the thirsty crowd at the free Honest Tea booth on 24th Street was on the verge of rioting at one point.

If you've got photos of Summer Streets or the neighborhood-scale Weekend Walks events that you'd like to share, upload them to Flickr and add the "Streetsblog" tag.
