Summer Streets returns to the streets this summer

The annual Summer Streets celebration returns on the first two Saturdays of the month (August! Tomorrow!) in which nearly seven miles of NYC roadways are closed to vehicles for people to run, walk, bike, etc.

As in previous years, this car-free zone includes Lafayette, Astor Place and Fourth Avenue.

This is the 13th edition of the event, which was on hiatus last August amid the pandemic.

You can find more details about Summer Streets at this link, including what kind of activities to expect along the route. There are several things planned for Astor Place, including fitness classes.

Finally! It's about time they put these signs up.

If you are going to ride this, get up early and do it then when it first starts, especially the Manhattan part. It gets rather stupid crowded later on.

Just 6 hours 2 times a year.
I hope the next NYC Council will expand it in scope and time.

Watch out when crossing an avenue some bicyclist thinks this is a competition.
