Summer Streets

Mayor Bloomberg opened up Park Avenue three Saturdays in August and we managed to make one of the dates. The Summer Streets event closed the road to traffic and opened it for walking, biking, running, and skating.

We had a great time frolicking along Park Avenue, and it would have been even better if we could’ve brought our bikes. (We had to take the train to get back in time to pick up our vegetables from the CSA.) The best part was that we got to walk the bridge and tunnel that usually take taxis flying around Grand Central station.

It’s not often that you get a photo like the one above. Normally standing right there would get you quickly smooshed by fast-moving cars.

This was one summer event I was glad we didn’t miss.
