Why are there no streets north of 72nd street included in the Summer Streets program? :-(
The DOT's Summer Streets program will turn streets from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park car-free 6 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, as well as next Saturday. Centre St. will close between the Brooklyn Bridge and Foley Square, Lafayette St. will close between Foley Square and Astor Place, Park Ave. will close between Astor Place and E 72nd St., and 72nd St. will close between Park and Fifth Aves. The following streets will remain open during the event: Chambers, Reade, Worth, Canal, Broome, Houston, 8th and 9th, 14th, 23rd, 30th, 34th, 37th, 41st, 42nd, 45th, 49th, 50th, 53rd, 54th, 57th, 59th, 60th, 65th, 66th, and 72nd Sts.
