The New York City Department of Transportation held its 11th Annual Summer Streets in New York City on Saturdays August 4th, 11th and 18th from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. running along Park Avenue, Lafayette and Centre Streets from Central Park to the Brooklyn Bridge. DOT once again hosted an expanded roster of fun and free activities along the route. “In its eleventh summer, Summer Streets will once again offer miles of fun, family-friendly and free activities, all in space that is blissfully free of cars and traffic,” said DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg. “This year’s Summer Streets activations will allow New Yorkers to see their streets in new and exciting ways. We encourage everyone to get out this year – and enjoy what has become over the last decade one of the great traditions of a New York summer.” Since 2008, the New York City Department of Transportation has presented Summer Streets along nearly seven miles of streets made accessible to the public for outdoor recreation – walking, running, cycling and playing, in addition to many free activities for all ages. Last year, 300,000 people attended Summer Streets, walking or biking along the event’s open, car-free streets.

 

Wheelchair Sports Federation hosted Wheelchair Basketball exhibitions each Saturday and was even visited by former NY Knick John Starks.
