Car-Free Summer Streets

Monday, June 29, 2009

Cars will not be welcome once again on Park Avenue and other city streets later this summer. Transportation officials are once again shutting down a seven-mile stretch from the Brooklyn Bridge, to Central Park, on three Saturdays in August. Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan says the car-free streets give New Yorkers a chance to slow down this summer and explore the city on foot.

SADIK-KHAN: And it's about creating a little bit more room to enjoy the streets and the great neighborhoods that make New York City what it is.

Sadik-Kahn says there will also be smaller street closures in the outer boroughs.
