New York City is opening up some pedestrian plazas starting this week.
City officials announced that Myrtle-Cooper plaza in Glendale will be opened to include exclusive seating, collective dining and open public seating.
“New Yorkers deserve more public space in our ongoing fight against COVID-19, and we’re proud to offer more places to get a safe outdoor meal on the weekends,” Mayor de Blasio said.
“With two extra months of outdoor dining now approved, restaurants will have more chances than ever to get back on their feet.”
The city’s Open Restaurants program now has more than 9,500 participants. They will be allowed to host outdoor dining through October.
