In New York, during the corona pandemic, after shops and restaurants, culture is now also said to spread outdoors.
Art, culture and live events are the heart of the city, said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “Today we’re bringing her back.” Starting March 1, cultural institutions will be allowed to submit applications to host art exhibits or cultural performances on certain streets.
To slow the spread of the coronavirus but at the same time support retail and hospitality, the city had already allowed shops, restaurants, bars and cafes to spread to streets, squares and sidewalks. The programs are considered successes – especially in the case of restaurants – and should therefore remain.
