I mean, we all knew it was bad, but yesterday, I saw with my own eyes a Greenwich Village that was vacant and closed down. Such a depressing sight to see. Many eateries that marked special moments, whether it was where I ate with my mom when I first moved here for law school (Nanoosh), where I ate with my love after hours of walking (Sammy’s Noodle Shop and Grill) or places we would visit for a treat after final exams— all were closed and gone.
You can find here a running list of the restaurants that have shuttered in NYC, due to COVID-19. We will miss the vegetable dumplings, creamy lentil soups and delicious rice. Change is a constant. A reminder that all we have are the experiences and memories we make with those we love.
Praying for everyone who lost employment and dreams. NYC won’t be the same without you.
