The past week, despite the brisk fall air, I’ve gone to eat out and enjoy what the New York City has to offer. I’ve been incredibly saddened, however, to come across empty store front after empty store front. The small businesses are getting hammered. New York is supposed to be where you go to give it your own and make it. The next few weeks will be crucial.
I’ll continue to try to support these businesses with the hope we can turn this around.
