NYC's Largest Heated Outdoor Dining Experience Opens in Industry City

NYC's Largest Heated Outdoor Dining Experience Opens in Industry City

Industry City—the largest indoor/outdoor, mixed-use campus in NYC—launched an extensive heated outdoor dining experience with some of New York's favorite food vendors. Each building is lined with heaters and features outdoor HVAC installations with courtyard seating that is comfortable to sit in throughout winter. The five breathable tents and heated tables throughout total more than 12,000-square-feet of seating. The heat comes from the building and the ducts allow tents to have open air circulation will maintaining comfortability.

“New Yorkers want to support small business and the hospitality industry as much as they can this season,” said Jim Somoza, director of development for Industry City. “They also want to have communal experiences in a safe and warm environment. We are uniquely suited to transform our courtyard space into a heated dining and drinking experience, essentially taking our indoor food hall outdoors.
