Phase 2 of Re-Opening Starts Monday, June 22; Alternate Side Rule Suspension Continued to 28th

Tomorrow — Monday, June 22 — all of New York City will enter Phase 2 of re-opening from the restrictions imposed to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. Time Out NY has an excellent summary of what this will entail. Briefly: (1) in addition to take out and delivery, restaurants may offer outdoor dining; (2) barber shops and hair salons may open, with restrictions that include no walk-ins; (3) customers may now enter retail stores to shop, again with restrictions; (4) offices for professional, administrative, information technology, and real estate services may re-open; and (5) playgrounds will be open, with parent monitors sought to enforce social distancing (and good luck to them). Masks continue to be required, and social distancing rules remain in effect.

Alternate side of the street parking rules were to go back into effect Monday, June 22, but it has just been announced that the suspension will continue through next Sunday, June 28.

    Thanks for this post! Just to clarify, I think Alternate Side Street Parking is still suspended through June 28th:

    I just got that from Notify NYC, and have changed the post accordingly. Thanks!

    “We can do this while continuing to keep our streets clean.” They’re not looking so hot right now I must say. Ugh, de Blasio.

    I just got e-mail from Salon Van Sickel that they will reopen tomorrow, and asking if I wanted to make an appointment now.

    I’m going to wait until all those women who need their roots retouched get their more pressing needs tended to!

    Hello. I walked by Heights Cafe today and they opened last Friday. No idea if they will offer outside dining, but I would imagine they would as that’s always been very popular.
