Another way to zip along

Well you can zip along in a car, you can zip along on a bike, you can zip along in a boat… and you can zip along on a zip line.

Really!

The New York City Department of Transportation set up a 160 foot zip line in Union Square as a preview to their annual Summer Streets celebration. The Summer Streets celebration closes down 7 miles of streets allowing only foot traffic and bicyclists during the first 3 Saturdays in August.

See it for yourself in this Atlantic Cities piece.

I’m not sure about the zip line across the Main Street of Cortland but I do like the idea of closing down the street. What say you, downtown businesses?
