Big Apple, Big Party, Big Zip,

An annual street party will host a zipline at 30 feet above the mean streets of New York, at East 17th Street and Park Avenue South, and runs for 160 feet. Times NewsFeed indicates it is billed as the city’s biggest block party, in which seven miles of city streets are blocked off, from the Brooklyn Bridge all the way to 72nd Street; instead of being filled with gridlocked taxis, the roads will feature exhibitions and activities ranging from yoga to dance classes, a 25-foot climbing wall, and, of course, the zip line.
