Summer Streets, presented by the New York City Department of Transportation, is an annual celebration of New York City’s most valuable public space—our streets. On three consecutive Saturdays in August, nearly seven miles of NYC's streets are opened for people to play, run, walk and bike. Held between 7:00 am to 1:00 pm, Summer Streets extends from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park, along Park Avenue and connecting streets, with easy access from all points in New York City, allowing participants to plan a trip as long or short as they wish. All activities at Summer Streets are free of charge, and designed for people of all ages and ability levels to share the streets respectfully.

He's Painting the Streets Red, And Yellow and Blue   The Song of Dragon and Flowers
“The portrait is of the past and the present of Doyers Street,” Mr. Chen, who speaks Mandarin, said through an interpreter last week. “When I paint a person’s portrait, I use the brush stroke to capture the internal spirit of that person. So as I was painting a portrait of the whole street, I wondered if I could capture the spirit of the street and Chinatown within my strokes.”   Doyers street, one of the oldest streets in Manhattan’s Chinatown recently put on a new look. Chinese artist Chen Dongfan spent 8 days painting directly on Doyers street to create a massive, 4,851 square foot colorful, vibrant mural titled “The Song of Dragon and Flowers”
