Family Friendly Fun This Summer in Manhattan = Summer Streets in NYC.
For three consecutive Saturdays in August, visitors and residents of NYC can experience the Big Apple in a whole new way. To encourage healthy recreation and more sustainable transportation, the city opens seven miles of its streets to the public for biking, riding, running, walking, and playing. No matter what you decide to do, this exciting event is guaranteed to offer quality entertainment for all ages!
Summer Streets in NYC is an annual celebration that strives to remind participants of the beauty of the City. New Yorkers and visitors have embraced this tradition with open arms, and in 2015, hundreds of thousands of people took advantage of the open streets to rediscover lower Manhattan’s culture, commerce, and history, and to partake in communal appreciation for their city. Details of this special event include:
- For three Saturdays this summer - August 6, 13 and 20, streets are open from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Extends from Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park, winding around Park Avenue and other connecting streets.
- Open to all ages.
- Welcomes a variety of participants, including motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians.
With so much open road, the possibilities are endless. Plus, practically all of the activities at New York City Summer Streets are free, so make sure you take full advantage of every opportunity that comes your way.
The Manhattan Club is here to provide you with quality accommodations when you want to take a break from your NYC adventures.
