The #SaveNYC organization is planning to bring some attention – and hopefully some much-needed cash – to businesses hurt by the 2nd Avenue disaster. Here are the details via the Facebook invite:
#SaveNYC is holding a Small Biz Crawl along Second Ave. to bring customers, cash, and attention to those mom-and-pops in most need. This weekend, we’ll do the western side of Second. Next time, the eastern side. Meet #SaveNYC on Saturday, April 11, at 12:00 noon. We’re starting at Gem Spa (since 1957), on the northwest corner of Second Ave. and St. Mark’s Place. Buy your magazines, cigarettes, egg creams at this first stop. From there, we’ll head down towards 7th Street. Do some gift shopping at Himalayan Visions (since 1997). Then it’s lunch at the B&H Dairy (since 1937) or Paul’s Da Burger Joint (since 1989). Your choice. After lunch, we’ll weave our way across the barricades of 7th Street to stock up on groceries at the New Yorkers supermarket.
#SaveNYC is an initiative started by local blogger Jeremiah Moss in support of New York’s mom-and-pops and other independent businesses. If you missed it, Jeremiah got the full New York Times treatment over the weekend.
