Summer Streets New York City Style

Price Tags


As we move towards the summer solstice today, there are other cities heating up the summer activities in their towns. Manhattan’s Summer Streets will prohibit car traffic on nearly seven miles of city streets from the Brooklyn Bridge to 72nd Avenue on the first three Saturdays in August from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. That is a lot of streets.

Starting August 6 there will be free bike rentals, fitness classes, theatrical performances, a huge water slide and even a zip line in Foley Square.


Remember when the City of North Vancouver did their “Slide the City”event last year? The event is expected to return for two days this year, with an estimated cost in the $25-$35 range to water slide down the 1,000 foot slide on Lonsdale Avenue. Here are side by side photos of the City of North Vancouver water slide and New York City’s water slide  below.
