Summer Streets: Bike, Dumpster Swim, & More On Park Avenue!
Ok kids, this is how I roll. Literally. Last weekend I threw on my rollerblades and hit Park Avenue (along with hundreds and hundreds of other New Yorkers.) If you have never taken advantage of Summer Streets you must get out and give it a shot. It is really an surreal experience. The DOT closes down Park Avenue to all vehicular traffic and lets bikers, rollerbladers, and exercise enthusiasts of all types rule the road!
I decided to pull out my Blackberry and take a video so that I could take you all along for the ride. Excuse the amateur shooter (aka me) and abrupt ending (I got a call!)
Saturday Aug 7 was the first day of Summer Streets, but tomorrow the fun continues (In my haste in the video making, I give the wrong future dates–warning do not roll, record and try and relay information at the same time).
GET OUT AND ENJOY A CAR-FREE PARK AVENUE:
SATURDAY AUGUST15 and SATURDAY AUGUST 22 from 7 AM TO 1 PM.
