Pop-Up Everywhere

I found a fun post on streetsblog yesterday. “Pop-Up” cafes are springing up in downtowns across the nation. New York City is pioneering a pop-up program, where parking spaces are given over to restaurants that are then granted permission to install basic outdoor seating platforms, which create an intimate pedestrian environment. Some of these restaurants are even offering WiFi and table service at their pop-up lounges or dining areas. What is normally just a parked car, baking in the sun, becomes a hive of activity. The major question is: What Haverstraw restaurant will be the first to get in on the trend? Here’s lookin’ at you, Antoine McGuire’s and Bella Rose Cafe! Enjoy a cool time-lapse video of a new pop-up cafe on Sullivan Street in Manhattan:
