Residents of Syracuse and the surrounding area can enjoy a new way to dine downtown and stay socially distant, thanks to an innovative endeavor.
‘Syracuse Parklets’ are one part tree and one part bench. They’re also part of a bigger project to help revive Syracuse’s downtown area amid COVID-19. The mobile outdoor seating option is also a way for local businesses and restaurants to expand their dining space during the pandemic.
‘Parklets for the People” was created with a goal to raise $10,000 for the project in Syracuse. They hope to have the parklets up and running in time for Downtown Dining Week in Syracuse.
