NYC Summer Streets Is Back Tomorrow. Here’s the Full List of No-Gos for Cars

New York City’s longstanding tradition of making some streets car-free for a number of weeks each summer is back.

It’s called Summer Streets and for those unfamiliar, we get to enjoy them for two more Saturdays, Aug. 13 and 20. On those days only, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. you can ride your bicycle, with your entire family or no one in tow, from the Brooklyn Bridge all the way up to 109th Street in East Harlem without having to worry about Manhattan traffic impairing your ride or your person.

No, you can’t choose any uptown street. But you do have options — Lafayette Street and Park Avenue. It’s quite a sight to see the otherwise intensely busy 8-mile stretch of Manhattan turned into an 8-mile-long park for people to play, run, walk and bike, even if it’s only for half a day. Learn more about Summer Streets and see the full list of street closures below.
