New York Small Businesses, Residents During Sandy #East Village Feedback
Thursday afternoon I took a stroll from Delancey to Union Square. At Clinton & Houston, I talked with the owner art-bar Culture Fix. Then met a homelss crew that shared some advice for those temporarily homeless. As I was walking up 1st avenue, I noticed about 30 or so people standing around outside 100 year old Saifee hardware store. They were all charging their batteries. The owner is sharing the power from their generator and provided multiple outlets. At 12th street and 1st avenue, I notice a sign for free curry and met the owner of Sapparo restaurant. They have been in business for over 30 years. The resturant was full and people were leaving tips of appreciation. As I was leaving the East Village, I came across the Guardian Angels, who shared some important tips for roaming the NYC streets wihout street lights.
