With Covid-19 raging, many families put off Thanksgiving gatherings until next year. Some, however, tried to make it work this year by eating outside.
For those without roof decks, one option was to set up tables on sidewalks or in parks to eat their meals. At least two families set up their meals on chess tables next to the Soldiers and sailors Monument at Riverside Drive and 89th Street. There were colorful tables and even a candelabra.
Others set up tables in Central Park, including another family (who asked to remain unidentified) that also had candelabras.
Cristina sent these photos of a gathering in Morningside Park, compete with paper hats.
And Sonja had a gathering in Morningside Heights: “My small 3 person bubble and I had a Thanksgiving oysters tailgate on the back of our car in Morningside Heights. Delicious Oysters were from one of our favorite west side spots, the Atlantic Grill.”
If you ate outside, please send your photos to westsiderag at gmail!
