  • Summer Streets Returns for 2014

    DSC_0127


    Summer Streets 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. Summer Streets provides space for healthy recreation and encourages New Yorkers to use more sustainable forms of transportation. In 2013, more than 300,000 people took advantage of the open streets.

    Summer Streets is modeled on other events from around the world including Ciclovía in Bogotá, Colombia and the Paris Plage in France. The event is part bike tour, part walking tour, part block party—a great time for exercise, people watching, or just enjoying summer mornings. Passersby are weclome to participate in arts and crafts workshops, listen to musical performances, learn to salsa dance, eat healthy snacks, climb a 25′ climbing wall, soar through the sky on a 160′ zipline and explore a 179 years voice tunnel.

All activities at Summer Streets are free of charge, and designed for people of all ages and ability levels to share the streets respectfully.

    Free Domino’s Pizza

    10276082_10150398050439957_6370122379376124797_n

    “As part of a partnership with the MLB, Domino’s has pledged free medium two-topping pan pizzas after each of the season’s first two no-hitters, and Beckett pitched the first one this Sunday against that shell of a team that plays in Philadelphia. The season’s second free pizza bonanza is now upon us, as another Dodger, Clayton Kershaw, shut out the Rockies last night. At this time, we really need to send the Dodgers something amazing, they’re responsible for 40,000 free pizzas :D

    The offer will be good for the first 20,000 fans who hit up the promo site for the freebie code at 3pm today — the only catch is you need an MLB.com account to play ball.” (Thrillist) The MLB account is free, and signing up take a few seconds. We’d suggest you sign up for an MLB account now, and then at 3 pm, you can simply register for the MLB Domino’s promotion.
