Summer Streets in Manhattan

79 degrees, dry, and sunny in Manhattan today, perfect for Summer Streets, the Bloomberg plan that closes Park Avenue all the way from Centre Street up to 72nd, and transforms it into an enormous pedestrian and bicycle path.  As I was running up Park toward the Met Life Building, the scene reminded me of I am Legend, except without the burnt out cars, that poor dog, and the flesh-eating zombies.
It’s only for three Saturdays this month, but I for one want this to continue every weekend, all summer, every summer — as long as I’m not planning to drive.  New Yorkers, get outside…now!
