On August 2, 9 and 16 from 7 am to 1 pm, nearly seven miles of NYC's streets will be opened up for everyone to play, run, walk and bike. From the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park, you can rock climb, soar on a zip line, or just experience the city’s streets in a new way—all for free. http://nyc.gov/summerstreets
