Aside from Broadway, Summer 2021 is set to be one to remember in New York City. Mayor Bill De Blasio signed into effect that the Open Streets initiative is here to stay allowing many restaurants to utilize the streets as expanded space and pedestrians to spend more time in open areas at a distance apart from one another. The C.D.C. also recently advised that vaccinated people can now go maskless in many indoor and outdoor places throughout the U.S. Good things are coming this summer and we can not wait to start living life to the fullest again around New York City.
