Today is the second of three Summer Streets Saturdays, where the city shuts down about seven miles of streets (from the Brooklyn Bridge to to 72nd Street and Park) for people to bike, stroll, and participate in activities along the way. After last weekend's first try, most of our readers (66%) think it's a terrific program--see some of the great photos here--while 23% think it could be better with some tweaking--perhaps more understanding of bicyclists' and pedestrians' space is needed.
We hope you have a fun time today--the streets are vehicle-free between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. Share your picture with us by sending them to photos(at)gothamist(dot)com or tagging them "gothamist" on Flickr. And you can email us tips and thoughts at tips(at)gothamist(dot)com or leave a comment here!
And here's more info from the Department of Transportation.
