NEW YORK CITY — Hungry New Yorkers will take over more city streets to enjoy outdoor dining.
Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday announced the city will sandwich together Open Restaurants and Open Streets on 15 more city streets.
The program will make those thoroughfares car-free starting Friday and weekends going forward, a release states.
"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," said Mayor Bill de Blasio in a statement.
