Manhattan's "Summer Streets" PSA - 6.9 Miles of Car-Free Fun

New York Streets Temporarily Free From Traffic

We've already told you all about Summer Streets - Manhattan's awesome plan for a temporary 6.9 mile car-free route through the city, inspired by Bogota in Colombia's regular 'Ciclovia' events. Now the good camera wielding, bike path promoting, pedestrian loving folks at StreetFilms have created a public service announcement to help make sure that the events are as successful as they should be. So come on out New Yorkers - the streets are yours. The events will be held on three consecutive Saturdays - August 9th, 16th, and 23rd, and they look set to be wonderful. More videos on safe streets and liveable communities after the fold.
