Brooklyn Receives First DOT Sanctioned “Pop-Up” Cafe

I love this! New Yorks DOT has enhanced the liveablity of local neighbourhoods by reclaiming parking space and creating an inexpensive opportunity for people to stop and participate in their city.  These pop-up spaces also create a facility that has the potential to enhance the economic position of local businesses.

Not to be outdone, NYC took the cue and has since added their own “pop-up” cafes, which are typically placed in front of restaurants where sidewalk widths preclude outdoor sidewalk seating. While the seats are open to restaurant patrons and non-patrons alike, intelligent business owners surely see the benefit to making space for people to linger in front of their establishments. Since last fall, several pop-up cafes have been built in Manhattan, adding much needed places to sit and enjoy the City’s wonderful street life.
