NYC DOT and our partners are proud to present Summer Streets. We will temporarily close Park Avenue and connecting streets from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park to motor vehicles and open it up to people on three consecutive Saturdays in August (August 8, 15, & 22).
This year DOT is also partnering with groups citywide to bring some summer streets fun to neighborhoods in all five boroughs. Download the Weekend Walks brochure to find one near you.
NY400 is working with Summer Streets to make their fleet of bright orange Dutch bikes available to Summer Streets participants:
In 1609, a Dutch ship called the Half Moon arrived to the shores of what is now New York City with Captain Henry Hudson at the helm. 400 years later, 200 bright orange NY400 bikes undertook the same journey as Hudson across the Atlantic Ocean to show New York City how much the Dutch love their bikes!
This summer, New Yorkers can try out an original Dutch NY400 bike in the streets of Manhattan during Summer Streets. Enjoy the car-free streets from the Brooklyn Bridge all the way up to Central Park on one of our bright orange bicycles!
