Summer Streets 2011 -- Manhattan's Car-free Festival

It's Summer Streets -- Year 3. If you haven't done this before, here's your chance to experience a very different view of New York City. Grab your bike or skates, don your helmet, and head over to Park Avenue to bike down the grand via all the way to City Hall. En route you'll be entertained, fed, amused, distracted (hopefully not too much), and surrounded by the freedom of no-cars, all-bikes, and great company. It's now a city tradition -- Saturday August 13 and 20, from 7am to 1pm.

This year's highlights include sand boxes and live sand sculpting in Foley Square, free bicycle and roller blade rentals, performances by Fringe Jr. Festival, and a guacamole-making demonstration.

See you Saturday!
