Streets Alive! Ithaca is a biannual celebration of a street closed to cars and open to people. The main focus of the event is enjoying a street open for people to bike, walk, roll and move. It’s an invitation to be active and to explore alternative ways of moving around in the city.
Streets Alive! Ithaca, on September 22nd in the Southside neighborhood of Ithaca, was a wonderful success. Thank you to all the friends, neighbors, community members, visitors, passerby, and VOLUNTEERS who came out to make our streets come alive.
The first Streets Alive! was Sept 21, 2012, and the second, May 5, 2013. On September 22nd, 2013, it happened in a new part of the City. People got to know each other, know their city a little better and enjoyed the freedom of all that public space available for moving and playing.
So, come join us during the next Streets Alive! Ithaca. Enjoy the street closed to cars and open to people. Bring your wheels, bring your friends and family, tell your neighbors, and make your streets come alive! Free and open to all.
