Summer Streets, the annual event where 7 miles of New York City’s streets will be closed to auto traffic and opened up for everyone to play, run, walk and bike in three consecutive Saturdays. The first Saturday will be tomorrow, August 4, 2012. August 11 and 18, 2012 will be the other two Saturdays for Summer Streets. Starting at the Brooklyn Bridge, along Park Avenue in Manhattan to Central Park, you’ll be able to bike or walk the street without cars, with activities along the route.
To get there from Dumbo, walk/bike over the Brooklyn Bridge. The East River Ferry will also be providing transportation to the Summer Streets NYC from Dumbo, waiving the $1 bicycle fee, all day, on the three consecutive Saturdays: August 4, 11, and 18, 2012. Cyclists can cross the river via East River Ferry from Long Island City (Queens), and Greenpoint, North and South Williamsburg, and Dumbo (Brooklyn) to get to Summer Streets NYC.
Summer Streets runs from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm.
