Mike Lydon reports from the tactical urbanism game of one-upsmanship between New York and San Francisco. Lydon explains how NYC's pop-up cafes work:
"While the seats are open to restaurant patrons and non-patrons alike, intelligent business owners surely see the benefit to making space for people to linger in front of their establishments. Since last fall, several pop-up cafes have been built in Manhattan, adding much needed places to sit and enjoy the City's wonderful street life."
