Weekend Walks are multi-block, multi-day events on commercial corridors that promote the use of streets as public space. Community based organizations apply to close commercial streets and provide programming that highlights local businesses and New York City’s unique neighborhoods.
Business improvement districts, cultural organizations, local merchants associations and community groups can apply to host Weekend Walks. They create wonderful opportunities for New Yorkers to gather and see their neighborhoods in a new way.
In 2018, NYCDOT is embarking on the eleventh season of Weekend Walks! If you are interested in hosting a Weekend Walks event, click here
