Summer Streets, Week Two
Riding around Grand Central is perhaps my favorite part of Summer Streets. When else can you get this close to Hercules, Mercury, and Minerva? (Seeing them from a taxi doesn’t count.) Plus, the ride through the Helmsley Building is pretty fantastic, especially if you use the occasion to ring your bell. If you go next week, I suggest trying it. I promise you a chorus of bells will ring out and echo through the cavernous cut-through in response.
My sister, who jogged Park Avenue, asked me during a stop at 24th Street, “Why doesn’t this happen every weekend all summer or even all year?” I think anyone who experiences Summer Streets probably wonders the same thing.
