For the third consecutive year, NYC DOT and partners present Summer Streets and have temporarily closed Park Avenue and connecting streets from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park to motor vehicles and opened it up to the public for August 14, & 21.
There are a bunch of fun activities during Summer Treats such as the “Join Joy Ride,” a group bike ride and picnic set to music created by theater artist, Liz Sherman. Space is limited so sign up today at www.joyrideo.com.
We think the most fun aspect of the program is “Swim at Summer Streets.” By reimagining the way we use city streets and dumpsters, code-compliant swimming pools with decks will be available to the public. Last year, we heard rumblings of the dumpster swimming pools in Brooklyn, and their back by MacroSea a company that takes clean, unused shipping containers and transform them into safe swimming pools. The pools will be set up near the Grand Central viaduct and you need a bracelet for free entry.
These pools really bring a whole new meaning to dumpster diving…
