Beyond Pandemic: Are Philly Streeteries Here to Stay?​

From North 5th Street to Baltimore Avenue, Philadelphia restaurants struggling to survive the pandemic found a lifeline in public space as they transformed sidewalks and streets into outdoor dining rooms.

These “streeteries” were envisioned as a temporary response to the pandemic. Now there is a chance to make them a permanent fixture via a bill under consideration in City Council. 

Join PlanPhilly for a virtual panel discussion featuring local restaurateurs, policymakers and accessibility advocates about the future of street dining.

The conversation:

Moderator: Ariella Cohen, Managing Editor, PlanPhilly


Ariel Ben-Amos, Founder StreetBoxPHL
Michael Carroll, Deputy Managing Director for Transportation, Infrastructure, and Sustainability
Latoya Maddox, Independent Living Services Specialist, Liberty Resources
Saba Tedla, Owner of Booker’s Restaurant & Bar
Aaron Moselle, PlanPhilly reporter
