It’s been one year since Superstorm Sandy hit the Northeast.
I work the Seaport area of lower Manhattan. Many of the smaller businesses here won’t come back – they tossed in the towel long ago.
Bridge Cafe, an small, old restaurant, won’t be open until February.
But there are shoots of hope as wintertime nears.
Il Brigante has had a flurry of construction work, and I hope to see this informal Italian reopened soon.
And a little over a week ago, Suteishi, a quality, inexpensive sushi place and my lovely , historic Paris Cafe finally reopened. I liberated Paris on their first day reopened, over chicken wings and Guinness.
Here’s hope that more of these places make it.
