COVID What’s Open [BETA]

We’re keeping an up-to-date list of which businesses are still open across the East Village.

A group of volunteers in the East Village are working hard to create a neighborhood-wide database of businesses open for takeout, delivery, or shipping, to help sustaining our local economy during the COVID-19 crisis.

Please use the map below to find East Village businesses that are still operational and restaurants that are providing a takeout or delivery service.

Map created and maintained with by Paul Gale, Perry Leung and a team of volunteers.

COVID-19 Impact

Resources for Small Businesses Impacted by COVID-19

Last updated April 9 at 7:00 pm EDT

Please help us get the word out about new resources and programs to help sole proprietors, small businesses and their employees get through this unprecedented challenge.

Financial Aid:

The takeaway on the new SBA Disaster Loan Advance: APPLY! 10 minute application = $10,000 emergency funds. The Loan Advance is designed to get funds in hand right away, and can work with other loan programs. The rollout of these programs has been bumpy, to say the least, and funds are not materializing as quickly as promised. We’ll be sure to let you when we hear they’re flowing.

The loan advance should soon provide relief to persistent sole proprietors, small businesses (including landlords) and nonprofit organizations with a checking account: YouTube how-to link courtesy of Big Apple CPA, FAQs courtesy of Empire State Development.

Still have questions? SBA 24/7 hotline: (800) 659-2955.

There are additional federal programs coming online. The takeaway: Apply! Apply! Apply! Sure, there is some overlap in the programs (SBA disaster loan advance, Economic Impact Disaster Loan (EIDL), Paycheck Protection Program). If you’re approved for more than one and aren’t sure how to proceed, consult with your regional office before signing on.

Your own bank is best positioned to assist you with the application process for the new federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). The nonprofit Fundera offers a list of providers and helpful links. Please let us know if you need help connecting with a lender.

Check out Amanda L. Kool’s plain-language article on these programs for medium. com, and this infographic from the US Chamber of Commerce.

Houston Street Center 473 Bowery

Despite the changes we see every day, our neighborhood is still a very special place!

Please help preserve what we have.

The City Council’s report expresses support for initiatives for which we have long advocated, and references EVCC’s

Preserving Local, Independent Retail: 
Recommendations for Formula Retail Zoning in the East Village

Several urban planning advocates have expressed strong support for implementing some form of formula retail use restrictions in New York City. 

At a joint hearing of the Committees on Small Business and Zoning and Franchises, the East Village Community Coalition presented its report“Preserving Local, Independent Retail: Recommendations for Formula Retail Zoning,” which calls for creation of a special permit for opening formula retail within an East Village Special Purpose District.

The report has the support of the Center for an Urban Future and the Greenwich Village Historical Society.

More Small Business Momentum

Mayor de Blasio announced he is “very interested in fighting for a vacancy fee or a vacancy tax that would penalize landlords who leave their storefronts vacant for long periods of time . . .” on WNYC as reported in The Post.

Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez reintroduced the long pending Small Business Jobs Survival Act (SBJSA).
Council Members Rafael Espinal, Jr., Margaret Chin, Carlina Rivera, and Costa Constantinides are sponsors.
Help ensure these vital initiatives reach fruition as soon as possible and with all their strength intact.

Please Comment On LPC Rules Changes, Update On Keep The Cap

Please comment on LPC Rules Changes!

There is still time to comment on LPC rules changes.
Public notice and the opportunity to comment are essential to good government.
Sign on to GVSHP’s letter today! 

Neighbors, elected officials, Community Boards and preservationists turned out in force to voice concerns about the proposed set of changes to Landmarks Preservation Commission rules.

With no public notice of applications or decisions made, and no opportunity to review or challenge applications, these will be presented as facts to LPC Staff, who are pressed to operate beyond capacity by the sheer volume of applications in today’s fast-paced market. Much to neighbors’ dismay, distressed historic family homes are being bought up and renovated for quick profit.

Rear yard and rooftop additions are of particular concern. Our shared courtyards were designed to bring light and air into our apartments. The trend toward converting this essential space into rooftop decks and rear balconies, to be used by a few, negatively impacts everyone else’s quality of life. Preservation is not just about how buildings look from the street: it’s about how buildings function, and what they were designed to do. Decisions that affect the public should include public input!

New York State Budget Keeps the Height Cap

For the second time in two years, the State legislature sought to lift a half-century old limit on the size of residential buildings.


“I am outraged that Senate Republicans proposed needlessly eliminating height restrictions by repealing the maximum Floor Area Ratio for residential buildings in New York City . . . This repeal would be one of the most dramatic changes in zoning law in the past 50 years, and it is unconscionable to try and push it through with no debate. I opposed this last year and will continue to fight tooth and nail to prevent this irresponsible proposal from becoming a reality.”

The NYS budget that passed last week will keep our height restrictions in place for now, but these ideas have a tendency to resurface when an opportunity appears. We will remain vigilant.

Old P.S. 64 CHARAS / El Bohio News

Mayor Bill de Blasio, Town Hall, October 12, 2017:

I understand now that there’s been, for over a decade-and-a-half, a controversy and a problem over the CHARAS building, and that the decision made a long time ago by the Giuliani administration was a mistake.
For the Giuliani administration to put that building into private hands failed miserably, and we’ve seen the negative effect that that has had on the community.
So I’m announcing tonight, the City’s interest in reacquiring that building.
We are ready to right the wrongs of the past, and we will work with Council Member Mendez and her successor to get that done.

A thrill went through the Town Hall crowd that heard these words, and nothing can diminish the value of the Mayor’s public recognition of the truth.

The East Village Community Coalition looks forward to working with the Mayor’s office, Council Member Mendez and her successor, Community Board 3, CHARAS, GVSHP, our coalition partners and our neighbors to see this cherished landmark returned to true community use.
