Each year, the New York City Department of Transportation partners with community groups to present Weekend Walks – multi-block neighborhood events on commercial streets temporarily closed to vehicles and opened to walking and other activities. These events take place year round in all five boroughs.
Business improvement districts, cultural organizations, Local merchants' associations and community groups host Weekend Walks as a fun way to highlight local businesses, and neighborhood resources. They create wonderful opportunities for New Yorkers to gather, see their neighborhoods in a new way, and rediscover their community.
If you are interested in organizing a Weekend Walk in 2016, download the Request for Expressions of Interest, complete the application and return it by close of Business on Friday, November 20, 2015.
