Observed: Outdoor Street Dining (sedeo strata)

As New York City has halted indoor dining and drinking, due to the preponderance of evidence that this creates a high-risk COVID-19 environment, outdoor street dining has popped up in the free curbside parking zone along many streets.

There are many versions of sedeo strata which have emerged into the last few weeks, at some point we all will have to see if there will need to be subdivisions. Examples with full canopies feel markedly different from examples with only places to sit.

This observer hopes this will be a lasting change to the city.
