Okay, New York. You’ve had two chances so far this August to get out of bed, off the couch, and outside to Summer Streets. This is your final warning.

The last of three Summer Streets this year is scheduled for tomorrow from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. along Park Avenue and Lafayette Street, from 72nd Street to the Brooklyn Bridge. The route connects to a car-free Central Park loop drive north of 72nd Street and is lined with fitness classes, live music, a zip line, and of course, the Voice Tunnel installation.

Have fun out there. You know you want to.
