How You Can Support Local Business During COVID-19

Our local businesses are what make our neighborhood a fun and exciting place to live, work and play.  In this time of uncertainty, we are asking you to support your local Greenwich Village businesses.   

For a complete list of Village Alliance district businesses and their current operating status,click here; for an interactive map of open businesses click here.


From delicious tacos to bagels to dim sum to croque monsieurs, hot pots and pastas, Greenwich Village is home to some of the best eateries in the five boroughs.   Effective Tuesday, March 17th, all bars, restaurants and cafes are limited to take-out and delivery only. This has caused quite a slow down for our food establishments.  Here is how you can support:  

  1. Purchase Gift Cards- purchase a gift certificate online to your favorite restaurant and use your down time to plan the perfect date night around your dinner.  

  1. Get Food Delivery or Take Out- many places in our district remain open for delivery or take out of your favorite items.  To see a complete updated list of openings and closures, click here. Please remember to check with your preferred restaurant to see if they offer delivery before ordering from a third party source.   

  1. Pick Up Your Favorite Cocktail- you read that right! New York State Liquor Authority is now offering take-out orders of your favorite alcoholic beverages! Call ahead and see what the bartender can have ready for you. Click here to see which establishments are open.

As a part of the #stopthespread initiative, most fitness studios have closed to the public.  To check fitness closures, click here. Here’s how you can help your studio stay afloat:  

  1. Purchase Class Packages- all studios in our district offer online platforms where you can purchase sessions to use at a later date.  

  1. Rep Their Brand- check out your center’s website for any deals they may have on apparel or supplies to keep you motivated through the distance.  

  1. Social Media Shout Out- finally nail that crow pose, hit that personal record, find your rhythm in your home practice? Shout out your gym on social media to let them know! 

Don’t let social distancing make you feel lethargic! New Vibe Yoga, 305 Fitness and Core Power Yoga on 8th Street are offering virtual classes so you can keep up your practice.
