Summer Streets ’10 Enters 2nd Week

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — It’s the second week of New York City’s “Summer Streets” program.

Nearly seven miles of City streets will be closed to cars for hours from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.

New Yorkers and tourists will rule the roadways. You can run, bike, skate, even take a dip in big dumpster swimming pools.

The fun takes place on Park Avenue from 72nd Street to the Brooklyn Bridge.

CBS 2’s Kathryn Brown reports:

  • Prof. Moonbeame

    I enjoy the lack of car traffic on Park Avenue ,all cars coming into Manhattan
    should pay $20 to come in to this city and pollute it even more.
    How many cars are here on business or because they are carrying a
    handicap person somewhere? I think very few ,our public transportation
    would be in better shape and fewer garages would be needed at their
    inflated cost.

  • The Truth Hurts

    This is one of the dumbest ideas ever. You can do all of these things in Central Park without having to pay an absurd amount of overtime to city workers and not cause traffic nightmares.
    This is just another ploy by Bloomberg to limit the amount of traffic since congestion pricing went into the toilet. This perfect Utopia of city “greenways” and pedestrian plazas is ridiculous.
