The Summer Streets block party returns this weekend for car-free fun in Manhattan

NEW YORK — New York City’s biggest neighborhood party is back on Saturday and it’s better than ever!

Summer Streets, the annual car-free festival, is held every August. This year, New Yorkers can take advantage of over eight miles of open roads.

The route begins at Chambers and Center Street in downtown, then continues on Park Avenue to 109th Street in East Harlem.
