Tables, benches, and chairs are pedestrian unfriendly. I’m all for new pedestrian plazas. For pedestrians. Using them as a thinly veiled maze of cafe seating serves nobody but crony capitalists. Walkways should be for the walking (figuratively. The non-walking disabled are also included in this category).
