NYC Summer Streets 2009

On Saturday the New York City Department of Transportation and partners kicked off the second annual Summer Streets. A car-free zone was created from 7 AM to 1 PM starting at 72nd Street and traveled mainly along Park Ave to the Brooklyn Bridge. New York City Department of Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan estimated that double the number of people visited the 7 mile route compared to the first Summer Streets event last year. If you missed Summer Streets on Saturday, don’t worry for you have two more chances to experience the car-free bliss on August 15th and 22nd.
