This will be my last post until Monday barring something unbelievably major happening over the weekend. Happy Independence Day everyone. Hopefully we can all celebrate our independence from Car Culture in our own ways this weekend.

Above is a Streetfilm from New York where a community has taken back their street for a block party. The party was sponsored by the New York Streets Renaissance, who are the same people that keep Los Angeles Streetsblog primed and ready to write. Brad Aaron, from New York Streetsblog, explains the film.

In this Streetfilm by Elizabeth Press, New Yorkers enjoy a block party on West 87th Street in Manhattan. The June event was one of dozenssponsored this summer by the New York City Streets Renaissance, many ofthem still to come. At over 3,000 block parties per year, New Yorkersmark their independence from traffic and pollution. How are youcelebrating your car-freedom this 4th of July weekend?
