Last Weekend of Summer Streets

August 15, 2016

This Saturday is the last weekend of Summer Streets in NYC so if you’re in town we’d recommend getting out and enjoying some of the activities that are offered. Here are some of our favorites that are posted on the event’s website:

The 165′-long, 30’-high zipline will return to Summer Streets this year and will be positioned at a new location on 53rd Street between Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue. The Bryant Park Jugglers will also be entertaining Summer Streets participants as they wait in line from 11 am – 12 pm.

Bicycle Utopia, “Bike Art Party”
Located on the east sidewalk on Park Avenue between between 52nd Street and 53rd Street, the “Bike Art Party” is an interactive pop-up bike portrait activity organized by Bicycle Utopia. Participants are invited to get their pictures taken “biking” in New York City, choosing from a selection of cityscapes from the past, present and future.

Dance, Theatre and Musical Performances
A diverse spread of musical, theatrical and dance performances will take place at the Uptown Stage located at 51st Street and Park Avenue.

Fitness Classes
Come stretch, jump, kick and get your heart rate up at free fitness classes with Crunch gym. *Crunch will provide 20 yoga mats for all yoga classes but we also encourage participants to bring one from home.

If you make it there, be sure to share your photos with us!
