There were snatches of European summers as I walked up 9th Avenue on this quiet Tuesday evening. Maybe this will be the only summer Hell’s Kitchen will ever have street dining, so let’s make the most of it. Businesses have been innovating, waiters are dodging bikes, and the city is coming alive.

Enjoy outdoor dining in Hell’s Kitchen this summer. Remember to add #W42ST to your social posts so that we can share what’s new in the neighborhood. We will add your images to the Hell’s Kitchen is OPEN! list.
