People walk through the Park Avenue Tunnel after it has been temporarily transformed into an art exhibition for pedestrians.

Part of New York City's Summer Streets program, people were able to walk through the 1,300 foot-long tunnel to experience a voice-activated light show.

The tunnel, which dates to the 1830's, carries one lane of northbound car traffic from East 33rd Street to East 40th Street.

Artist and creator Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is known for his large-scale interactive art.
