It's back!!! Summer Streets is on and popping here in NYC.. The city of New York closes down Park Ave. to vehicle traffic every Saturday in August from 7am-1pm, from the Brooklyn Bridge all the way up to Central Park!! Instead of cars and trucks which we're not fans of, it stays open for runners, bikers, skaters and every other form of human powered wheels you can imagine, making it the country's single largest urban green space by far!!
We've been running the skate booth (exceptionally well I might add!!) for 9 consecutive years now at Summer Streets, and this year looks to be just as awesome as always with 300,000 vibrant New Yorker's descending upon the open street on Park Ave!! Most of whom come to us for a complimentary skate rental and lesson, which we are ecstatic to provide..
The first week which happened this past Saturday was a success, especially with the forecasted rain holding off for what turned out to be a gorgeous day. We handed out hundreds of skates (from our massive inventory) and gave lessons to many first timers who swore they would be back again this coming Saturday after receiving free lessons from our nationally certified staff of skate instructors!!
This coming Saturday should be just as amazing, if not even better!! So we encourage all of you and your friends and family to come out and enjoy the streets of summer, on a pair of our finest skates no less!! Our booth is located on the SE corner of 25th Street and Park Ave. in front of the Bank of America. Make sure to come early so you can skate as long as possible, we'll see you there!!!
