Reminders: Summer Streets return tomorrow (Saturday!)

[Photo of Lafayette and Great Jones from last Saturday at 1 p.m.]

The second Saturday of Summer Streets takes place tomorrow (Saturday!) from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Around here, the vehicle-free zone includes Lafayette, Astor Place and Fourth Avenue.

In addition, there are all sorts of activities at the Citi Rest Stop in Astor Place, including Smellmapping Astor Place:

DOT Art and the Village Alliance have partnered with designer Kate McLean to produce a Smellmap of the Astor Place neighborhood. Three smellwalks were hosted over the past few months with local residents and stakeholders to gather smell data/information. Participants were asked to explore the environment strictly through their sense of smell by smell catching (receiving smell info), smell hunting (searching for smell info) and lastly free smelling (a mini smell research project). Mclean has collected all the smell data and visualized the findings as a colorful smellmap. McLean will be on-site to lead two walks at 9 am and 11 am to continue building on this research and invites participants to incorporate their findings into a large-scale smellmap available on-site.

What does Zoltar smell like anyway?

Har de har har. You try sitting all day in this thousand-degree fish tank and see if you still smell like a daisy.
