In general though a huge amount of retail business in that area. I recall that all of them had to close after 9/11. There are a huge amount of non-retail (non-food) related businesses. Hope all will be able to recuperate.

The area affected is far more than the east 14th St area though. East of Madison Ave, it stretches from 26th St all the way downtown, and west of Madison Ave from 38th St all the way downtown -- so through Chelsea and Greenwich Village, SoHo, Tribeca, NoHo, NoLIta, Little Italy, Chinatown, the financial district, East Village, Alphabet City, Lower East Side....

Many business in the east 14th St neighborhood remained after 9/11, btw. Whenever I walk through that area, I see many of the places I've known for many years.

I hope not many will be forced to close because of Sandy's impact. Today in our area of the Village, most of the food shops were open again, restocked or in the process of restocking. Some places, like our butcher on Bleecker St, had to throw out EVERYTHING and start from scratch.
