Summer Streets 2022 - Live Aug 6th 2022


One of the most awaited Summer Events is back this year and we will have the opportunity to walk without cars along Park Avenue. New York's annual Summer Streets features an eight-mile program of activities & entertainment, starting from the Brooklyn Bridge in Lower Manhattan to East Harlem.

The event, which includes three Saturdays, will start on Saturday August 6th, for the occasion the city offers unlimited 30-minute passes on Citi-Bikes – the rental is offered free of charge by Unlimited Biking, there will be six pick-up points along the way.

Not only New Yorkers love Summer Streets, some 300,000 people flock to Park Avenue each year to play, run, walk, and cycle.

Daily activities and events will take place from 7 am to 1 pm on each Saturday.

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]

The SATC walking tour is fabulous! Our tour guide was amazing. Friendly, helpful, accommodating and so knowledgeable about the city. It was essentially 2 tours in 1. SATC and visits to historical places in the city. I give this tour 5 stars and definitely recommend. Grab your walking shoes and schedule one today!
