The Street Art Helping NYC Restaurants Stay Alive

Bill Tsapalas, a longtime resident of the Tribeca neighborhood in NYC, saw so many neighborhood restaurants shutter amidst COVID-19. Hoping he could help, he used his skills as a creative director and marketer to pair up restaurants struggling to pivot to outdoor dining with visual artists, and helped turn makeshift plywood dining structures into giant curbside street art installations. Seeing how successful the initiative was in Tribeca, Bill became the force behind the Neighborhood Curbside Canvas Project, a New York City-wide volunteer project that helps provide art, opportunity, and hope to restaurants, artists, and residents alike in neighborhoods all across the boroughs.
