Sponsored by the New York Department of Transportation and its partners, Summer Streets is an annual program which temporarily closes Park Avenue and connecting streets from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park to motor vehicles and open it up to people on three consecutive Saturdays in August (August 6, 13, & 20).
The Foley Square Rest Stop, at Duane and Centre Streets, feature sand boxes for everyone to enjoy and live sand sculpting by Matt Long of Sand Masters. Sand sculpting workshops take place each day at 9 am, 10:30 am and noon. The Rest Stop also hosts Learn to Ride bicycle classes from Bike New York, a self-portrait booth hosted by DOT's Urban Art program, free bike valet parking and a water station.
