Three Saturdays this August a stretch of New York City's Park Avenue was closed off to cars and trucks.
As a little girl, looking north from a window on the 14th Floor of 230 Park, the spire-topped jewel where my father's engineering firm was located (in the photo above, it's the building directly in front of the MetLife Building), I never imagined that someday children would be able to ride their bikes in the street below.
But obviously someone did.
