Map Tool Shows What Businesses are Open Around the East Village During COVID-19
There is a new map tool making the rounds that lists “essential” businesses open and operating during the COVID-19 shutdown. Data is crowdsourced from the community via tips and submission forms, then plotted.
The endeavor was launched by “East Village residents that love our neighborhood small businesses and independent organizations.” Notably, the East Village Community Coalition, residents Perry Leung, Paul Gale, and venerable blogger EV Grieve.
The volunteers continue to appeal for submissions in order to keep the resource as up to date as possible.
