DOT ‘Street Seat’ Goes Live Outside Dudley’s on Orchard Street
Just in time for the forthcoming return of Dudley’s, Orchard Street now boasts a new row of public seating. Beside another recently installed bike corral. And it’s all part of the city’s Street Seat program.
More than a half-dozen tables and chairs are stationed between the corner of Broome down to Cafe Katja.
As previously reported, Department of Transportation and the Lower East Side Partnership proposed the curbside amenity last year in tandem with Cafe Katja and Dudley’s, the two businesses that will most benefit from the placement. The Street Seat plan, which also resulted in a loss of eight parking spaces, received approval from Community Board 3 in May 2018.
