NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg

The Honorable Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of the City of New York, today issued an official mayoral proclamation declaring Saturday, August 14 “International Taoist Tai Chi Awareness Day.”

Joining thousands of members around the world, the New York City branch will be demonstrating the 108-moves of the Taoist Tai Chi set tomorrow at 14h00 GMT (10 a.m. EDT). Part of the annual Summer Streets program—during which a major artery stretching several miles from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park is closed to vehicular traffic—the demonstration will bring together New York members and guests at the Upper Rest Stop at 51st St. and Park Avenue at 9:30 am for their Awareness Day festivities.
