I have seen a lot of different set ups for outdoor seating in NYC. I made a post about some of them 1-2 years ago. This one that I came across a few months ago is my favourite one.
They put this one inside an old bus. I guess this may be easier than constructing one out of wood that you would have to eventually remove. When the time comes, they can drive this one away to another location. Having this inside a bus negates having to put up barriers.
I believe this was on 8th Avenue north of 34th Street and south of Times Square. It could have been on a different avenue though.
I think this was a creative take on outdoor seating that made the dining experience more unique. What do you think?
