Taking a page from Portland's playbook, New York City is going car free. The plan is to close seven miles of streets on three consecutive Saturdays this August. The streets will be closed from 7 am to 1 pm on August 9, 16, and 23rd.
In addition to opening the streets for pedestrian/bicycle activity, there are a number of programmed activities, including:
- Dance classes, adult & children
- Exercise class
- Bicycle races
