ALBANY (WENY) – Restaurants and bars in New York are allowed to continue using municipal space for outdoor dining this summer.
That’s after Governor Cuomo signed new legislation Wednesday.
This extends an executive order by the Governor, which was an attempt to help out restaurants and bars that were struggling during the coronavirus pandemic with restrictions on dining.
Last year, Corning’s Market Street was closed off to cars to allow for businesses to move out into the sidewalk.
Just this past weekend, the street was blocked again for the Fourth of July holiday.
The new rule says that they could potentially do that again, but there’s no indication yet that it will happen.
