Comptroller and mayoral candidate Scott Stringer wants city funding for open streets and more splashing around in front of fire hydrants — the latest plank of his platform to give every New Yorker a summer to remember.

It was a busy weekend, so let's get right to the news (plus a weird, Escher-type shadow photo from Williamsburg).

The City Council will close the gap of leadership exhibited by the de Blasio administration on making permanent the open streets program — mandating more open streets, allowing for their conversion into 24-7 car-free zones and ensuring that they are equitably distributed.
