In Case You Missed It: Summer Streets Starts Tomorrow
With the first Saturday of its fifth season coming up tomorrow, Summer Streets is a lifestyle story — to the extent that it’s still considered news at all. Consider today’s preview in the Times, which is basically a summary of a DOT press release.
Not that the city isn’t keeping it fresh. Summer Streets 2012 will include football, a climbing wall and the feature everyone seems to be talking about: a 160-foot-long zip line. And if you tire of seeing all those relaxed New Yorkers enjoying seven miles of car-free asphalt, a truck will be on display to offer a view from the driver’s seat. Step up and watch the pedestrians disappear!
Park Avenue will be open to people from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. for three consecutive Saturdays.
