NEW YORK -- New York City's Summer Streets program is coming back for 2024, with even longer hours.

The Summer Streets program shuts down streets to cars across the five boroughs on certain Saturdays. 

This year, the streets will be closed for two more hours from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., encouraging people to enjoy the extra outdoor space for things like walking, running and cycling, as well as performances and other activities. 

Mayor Eric Adams and the Department of Transportation announced the program's return Tuesday, calling it the "Summer of Possibility."

"Whether you want to find a new job, enjoy a summer concert, enjoy our largest-ever summer streets program, or take part in so much more our city has to offer, our administration is working every day to ensure our city is working to give you the summer you want and deserve. This city is full of possibilities!" Adams said in a press release.
