NYC Council approves outdoor dining bill
The New York City Council will make outdoor dining permanent in the city after approving a bill on Thursday, but some changes will come with it.
The new rules will allow the sidewalk cafes to operate all year round.
Restaurants will be allowed to have outdoor dining spaces in the roadway like they have since 2020. But, now they can't have walls or ceilings and they'll have to be out of the roadway for four months out of the year in the winter.
