New York Creates Map of Sidewalk Cafes

The city of New York has a new map of sidewalk cafes. This is of interest to me because there are over 1300 of them. “Applications can be rejected because business owners are unaware of zoning regulations. And community boards often complain of excessive noise or crowding. The city aims to address some of these concerns with a new interactive map of all 1,357 sidewalk cafés, allowing the public to track the status of each eatery’s application, license number, expiration date and health grade. It even shows the number of outdoor tables and chairs allowed for each dining spot.”
