Let’s be honest: We all wish our neighborhood streets were less jammed with cars and buses so we could cross the road as calmly as that chicken we’ve all heard of. Well, this Friday, June 19, our wishes have been granted, for at least a few hours. Friday marks the first of four installments of the second-annual Summer Stroll on 3rd Avenue in Bay Ridge, where from 6pm to 10pm pedestrians have free reign of the asphalt (from 80th St. to 90th St.). Featuring performances from singer-songwriter Dani Mari and classic rock cover band Secretly Famous, as well as a Bay Ridge-centric art project through Bay Ridge Arts and Cultural Alliance, Summer Stroll is sure to be a festive family affair. Modeled after the New York City Department of Transportation’s Summer Streets program and presented by the DOT, the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and other city agencies, the best of 3rd Avenue comes out for this event, including Italian pastry experts Monaco’s Bakery, playtime afficionados Kaleidoscope Toy Store and Uncle Louis G‘s ice cream. With more than 100 participants, there’s sure to be something for even the most persnickety Brooklynite.
