Newsletter: 040 | Summer Streets
Every year for three Saturdays in August, nearly seven miles of NYC's streets are opened for the community to run, walk, bike, and partake in activities. It's a great opportunity to get outdoors, experience the city, and be active. The initiative, called Summer Streets, kicks off next Saturday (August 4th). We'll be lacing up our running shoes for a 4-mile run starting near the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge and ending near the southeast corner of Central Park. More details below. Join us!

Where We'll Be This Week
Join us for a summer run through the streets of NYC. The plan is to start near the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge and end near the southeast corner of Central Park (approx. 4 miles), but you can join for any part. All fitness levels welcome.
You'll need to sign up online at the links provided for ticketed events. Attendance is at your own cost and subject to limited availability. No need to RSVP to us for any of these events, but let us know if you'd like to be kept in the loop on any last-minute scheduling changes. Also, keep in mind that these events are not firm-hosted or sponsored events, so we have no control over availability, pricing or any other matters associated with these events. This is just our attempt at cultivating community by giving us all a chance to connect outside of the office.
