Once a year on Fifth Avenue in New York City, traffic is cut off for a mile along an area called the Miracle Mile, which is a mile where all the art museums are located. This mile includes the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim.
For a few hours, people are allowed to congregate in the street and visit all the art museums for free. Many street entertainers and vendors also try to capitalize on this event.
The Guggenheim Museum provides free sidewalk chalk for kids, young and old, to draw in the street on 5th Avenue outside the Guggenheim.
