NYC Summer Streets 2024: What you need to know

The Summer Streets program is returning to all five boroughs this summer with expanded hours, the NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) said.

Now they will be open two hours later, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. over five Saturdays for the first time since its 2008 launch.

"Whether you want to find a new job, enjoy a summer concert, enjoy our largest-ever summer streets program, or take part in so much more our city has to offer, our administration is working every day to ensure our city is working to give you the summer you want and deserve. This city is full of possibilities!" Adams said in a press release.

The program allows New Yorkers to enjoy nearly 20 miles of car-free streets.
