Today is the last day for NYC’s Summer Streets 2009 [2]!

NYC DOT has been closing Park Avenue from Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park on Saturdays, from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to all motor traffic so that NYC residents can walk, run, or bike along city streets. This is the third and LAST Saturday for this great initiative, so we hope you are planning on getting out there. Why, you ask? Well, we support anything that encourages people to get outside and enjoy the warm weather, but foot traffic is also a boon to local business. Speedy transportation often facilitates the growth of chain stores and fast food joints. So please slow down your pace today and show your support for NYC, this initiative, and a more livable and friendly city!
