New City Accounts Commissioner Dillon Moran is pushing a long-term plan to close some streets to cars on weekends during the spring and summer months.

Restaurants would be allowed to serve customers on sidewalks.

Moran says COVID made it a necessity, but it should continue even after COVID.

It would be Thursday through Saturday nights.
