The city has released a new map that provides the public with a list of restaurants across the five boroughs offering outdoor dining.

The Department of Transportation has posted the map online–called “NYC Open Restaurants“—that provides a growing list of the more than 6,200 restaurants now offer outdoor dining.

The public is able to search a restaurant by name, borough and zip code and even find out if alcohol is being served.  There are 1,210 establishments listed in Queens, with 40 in Sunnyside, 88 in Long Island City, 56 in Forest Hills, and more.

The guide was introduced following the city entering into Phase 2 last Monday, when some restrictions were lifted. Phase 2 allows bars and restaurants to provide outdoor dining as long as social distancing measures are in place.

The map shows what outdoor dining options are available— including tables on sidewalks and parking lanes.

This week, some restaurants will be able to set up on the street.

The DOT is accepting applications from business improvement districts and various associations to set up seating on roadways that were part of the Open Streets program.

Sen. Ramos delivers potential death blow to Mets owner’s dream of a casino alongside Citi Field

State Senator Jessica Ramos dealt a serious blow Tuesday to New York Mets owner Steve Cohen’s dream of building a massive casino and entertainment complex on the parking lot adjoining Citi Field where Shea Stadium once stood.

Ramos announced she would not support the $8 billion Metropolitan Park proposal, rejecting major pressure from her colleagues in government, including Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and community leaders from nearby neighborhoods, who urged her to support permitted use legislation that would be required to build the complex on state-owned public parkland.
