Huge Water Slide Coming to Downtown Manhattan in August

New, 2 comments

Summer Streets, the annual program that lets pedestrians and cyclists takeover major roadways in New York, is already awesome, but this year, it will be even better: a 270-foot water slide will join the lineup, according to the New York Post. Nearly seven miles of city streets from Central Park to the Brooklyn Bridge (mostly via Park Avenue and Lafayette Street) will be free of cars for three Saturdays in August, and past years have included free snacks, a rock wall, and a zip line. This year, you'll be able to get wet and wild at Foley Square, courtesy Slide the City.
