Another Bloomberg fantasyland project

Janette Sadik-Khan now says that parking lanes are no longer for parking. They're now for outdoor dining. Because sidewalk cafes just aren't good enough anymore. I for one love the smell of diesel exhaust mixed with my meals.

Crapper don't pick on diesel, it has been clean since 2007 when they finally removed the sulfur. Go down to AUDI and test drive a super high mileage diesel car and then please retract your slur on diesel. Thank you

Meals plus exhaust fumes, great for the lungs and this from a man that bans smoking everywhere. It's actually laughable if it weren't so pathetic.

another scheme to get more illegal immigrants work and put money in the pockets of non citizens.

Just what are they smoking in City Hall?

I'll bet the city collects lots of sanitation tickets for dirty sidewalks from these restaurants. Just another way for Bloomturd to balance the city's budget by nickel and diming everyone but the rich...

Believe it or not in Europe there are streets that are closed to cars. Yes what a ridiculous waste: in Europe some streets are closed to cars and it is exactly these streets that have the most sidewalk cafes.

Did anyone actually read this article?:

“It would make the neighborhood cozier,” said Irene Lo Re, the president of the Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District and the owner of Aunt Suzie’s Restaurant. “It would add a dimension of warmth to neighborhood.”

This is a public land grab from private interests.

Plain and simple.

This should be illegal and banned, not condoned because it makes the neighborhood cozier!

I'd venture that the majority of people who are dining outside are smokers and thus give a rat's ass about the exhaust fumes.

And if the sidewalks were clogged up enough already, now we'll have to contend with waiters carry trays of food out to the curb.
