Summer Streets Returns in August
Summer Streets 2017
Returns in August
For the 10th straight year, 6.9 miles of Park Avenue and connecting streets will be closed between the Brooklyn Bridge and Central Park as "Summer Streets" returns for three consecutive Saturdays in August.
On August 5, 12, and 19, between the hours of 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM, these streets will be open to the public to play, run, walk and bike. In 2016, nearly 300,000 people took advantage of the open streets. In East Midtown, the rest stop at Park Avenue and East 52nd Street will feature a 165-foot long, 30-foot high zip line, bike rental, art exhibits and performances, and much more.
