If you hear drumming along Amsterdam Avenue on Sunday afternoon, March 13th, it will be coming from the Amsterdam Open Streets program, which is resuming between 106th and 110th Streets. From 10 am until 7 pm, that stretch of the avenue will be closed to cars.
Sunshine is predicted, which means JoJo Soul will be performing starting at 2 pm, leading a drumming circle, which you can enjoy and join in.
Open Streets is a NYC program, overseen by the Department of Transportation. “It may turn out to be one of the most important legacies of the coronavirus pandemic,” The New York Times observed. “It is transforming public spaces that have long been the domain of cars.”
