Each year, Park Avenue is closed to traffic on the nearly seven miles from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park for the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT)’s Summer Streets, encouraging New Yorkers to use a more sustainable form of transportation. In 2018, nearly 300,000 people walked, ran, skated, and bikes along the Summer Streets family-friendly, pet-friendly route along Park Avenue.
Summer Streets will take place on August 3, 10 & 17, 2019 along Park Avenue from the Brooklynn Bridge to Central Park between 7:00am and 1:00pm.
Stay tuned for the 2019 Map showing rest stops offering unique themes, music stages, tasting zones, fitness classes, and much more.
Lever House on Park Avenue and 54th Street is featuring Lever House Alumni Jorge Pardo, Enoc Perez and Urs Fischer this Summer in its beautiful, ground-level lobby/gallery space.
