Memorial Day Digital Package
May 22, 2020
NYC Memorial Day is always filled with the opening of sidewalk cafes, rooftop drinks, and bar hopping. While it may look a bit different this year, there are still things to make the most of the national holiday. We’ve put together a Memorial Day package for you to enjoy the neighborhood from inside or outside of your home.
Meatpacking recently opened three streets as part of Mayor de Blasio’s Open Streets plan, in which pedestrians and cyclists share the road and only local traffic is allowed. Streets are shared to allow for the practice of physical distancing as the weather gets warmer and so we can more easily get from A to B.
The three shared streets in Meatpacking are Little West 12th Street from Ninth Avenue to Washington Street, West 13th Street from Ninth Avenue to Washington Street, and West 17th Street from Eighth Avenue to Tenth Avenue. Enjoy the shared streets, now with plenty of room to be physically distant.
