Mulberry Street Closes, Gets More Outdoor Dining Space
Mulberry Street in Little Italy is now one of several stretches of city roadbed that is closed to car traffic in an effort to support outdoor dining for local restaurants. This comes in light of the extended pause on indoor dining, previously slated to open at half capacity this past Monday.
This past Saturday morning, barricades blocked traffic on Mulberry Street, from Hester Street to Broome Street. A thoroughfare was still open at Grand Street. This is part of a plan Mayor de Blasio announced in a press briefing on July 2, that would allow some streets to close Friday afternoons until Sunday nights. On Mulberry, you can expect a festive atmosphere, without the threat of cruising cars interrupting your lasagna and Pinot.
