The streets of New York City aren't very pedestrian friendly, with cars, taxis and buses whizzing by constantly. But for three Saturdays in August (2nd, 9th, and 16th) from 7am-1pm, the streets are all yours to do as you please because the long stretch from the Brooklyn Bridge on Lafayette Street all the way up to Park Avenue and Central Park will be closed to vehicles. Bike, run, play, without the fear of being run over. There's also 5 rest stops with various activites such as a dog park, performances, free bike rentals, a climbing wall, a zipline, and so much more. Visit the website for more information and enjoy this rare opportunity.
