Outdoor Dining in NYC

The creativity of the structures covering the sidewalks and the lanes of traffic on either side of certain Manhattan streets fit perfectly within the city. These structures are the addition that New York City needed to bring it back from “the dead.” Manhattan is alive and well, and these outdoor dining structures played a big part in it bouncing back so quickly. They are greatly beneficial to the city’s restaurants. From a virus that affected New York City so negatively, something unexpectedly inviting came out of it just in time for summer. 

Creativity came into play while these restaurants created their newly allowed outdoor dining setups. These structures started out as just a way to keep the restaurants open and able to serve while abiding by the newly placed regulations on indoor dining during the pandemic. They then turned out to be the new Instagram-worthy spots to check out. 

Below are some of the beautiful structures that I have photographed while visiting Manhattan.
