Here are some pictures of what I saw today on the Lower East Side and in the East Village. I tried when I tool pictures of restaurants that were open to include the name so if you are looking for a place to eat tonight you will know at least a few places to try.
Frankies on Clinton Street.
Lavagna on East 5th and Avenue B.
Casimir on Ave B and 6th.
Paradiso has you covered.
Brix wine store across the street was open so we could drown our sorrows over the loss of that Willow...
Sunburnt Cow whose back room just missed being crushed by a downed tree was open and happening!
Zum Schneider it was business as usual, which means packed.
