In the 50s and 60s the block between 2nd & 3rd Avenue N and N 29th St & Broadway was an endless wave of youths and their rides "Burning The Point". It was the place to be and be seen. When traffic got too heavy, police walking that beat would roll out the "No Right Turn" signs stored on the corners, and the pattern expanded to nine blocks! In the years to follow the lack of places to pull off and pressures a city exerts when the inevitable few forget how to behave in a crowd sent the kids to the West End and a new place to cruise. Chase Hawks Memorial Association acquired the rights to Burn The Point from the Downtown Business Association in 2003. A score of local car enthusiasts - led by Sylvia Gusick - have made this event bigger and better every year since.
The parade route begins at the intersection of 3rd Avenue and 27th St moving West for several blocks before turning East on 2nd Avenue towards the Skypoint.
