Don't miss Open Streets on State Street

Only two days until everyone will see seven blocks and five lanes of Chicago's grand State Street transformed into a ciclovia (spanish for "bike path").

Instead of waiting to catch the 29 bus on State Street this Saturday, I will be on the same street roller skating under a disco ball groovin' to 70s funk music with the Windy City Rollers. No buses, taxis or cars.

You’ll see kids and parents playing in the Imagination Playground with big giant blue blocks. You’ll see people riding bicycles, people running and walking, and yogis on mats doing yoga. There’ll be break dancers, skateboarding, and places to just chill out and relax.

In short, it’ll be the best block party you’ve ever seen, and everyone’s invited.

And check out this week’s New City cover story penned by John Greenfield. It shares the past and present of the Open Streets movement in Chicago and asks the reader to imagine the future.
