The sidewalk outside of the coffee shop Ecopolis, on Smith and Warren, is getting Brooklyn’s first DOT-planned pop up cafe. Last summer DOT launched the Pop up Cafe Program which “provides outdoor public seating in the curb lane during the warm months and promote local businesses.” CB2 is working on Brooklyn’s first application, which will hopefully be installed May 1st and last until October. There’s no waiter or food service, just a public seating space (alcohol and smoking aren’t allowed.) The cafe space will last the width of the building and be 6 feet deep on a platform space going out into the parking lane. Do you like this idea? It was mentioned at the last CB2 meeting the program would also work well on Fulton Street. GMAP
