With COVID-19 still very much a part of our daily lives, the Fourth of July will certainly look different this year. Large parties, gatherings and events are still off limits and the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest just won’t be the same without 20,000 people cheering on Joey Chestnut and the other competitors. Still, there are many ways to celebrate our nation’s birthday in New York City.
It’s official! New York City has entered Phase 2 of the New York Forward Reopening plan as of Monday, June 22nd. This means that several businesses including hair salons, barbershops, and some in-store retail shops can welcome customers again. This also means that city restaurants can now offer outdoor dining service! Many Village eateries have set up safe and comfortable outdoor seating areas to welcome you back.
There are countless favorite moments from marches that have passed through our neighborhood; our photos capture some of our favorites from our West 8th Street vantage point. Share yours with us and we will add them to our gallery!
