What to Expect

Just a few more days left until South Slope Summer Strolls takes place on Fifth (this Friday from 12th to 18th Street, 5-9 pm).

We've had a lot of people ask us this week whether this is a street fair. The answer is no. South Slope Summer Strolls is actually part of the NYC Department of Transportation's Weekend Walks program:

Local merchants' associations, community groups, and business improvement districts host Weekend Walks as a fun way to highlight local businesses and cultural institutions. The Walks are temporary pedestrian streets that create great opportunities for New Yorkers to gather, see their neighborhoods in a new way, and relax on summer weekends.

In other words, more like this:

And less like this:

So expect a little music, some fun kids activities, outdoor seating, food and drink from local bars and restaurants and lots of public space to enjoy. Do NOT expect Italian Sausage or tube sock vendors.

See you there!
