Recovery Fund for Damaged Businesses
Help support Chinatown’s small businesses that were damaged recently!

On May 30 to June 1, 2020, several businesses in the neighborhood were vandalized and looted during recent protest-related events. Glass doors and windows were smashed, and ten of thousands of dollars of store merchandise/inventory was stolen.

Below is a just partial list of the businesses that have been affected:
  • 179 Grand Street Mall 
  • 7-Eleven
  • Buy Rite Pharmacy
  • Canal Smoke
  • Centre Care Pharmacy
  • Family Plus Pharmacy
  • Global Bank
  • MK2 Optical
  • Naked Cashmere
  • T-Mobile
  • TD Bank
  • Troquet
  • Wei Beauty Salon
All funds raised will go towards the replacement of damaged glass doors and windows of the affected businesses. Any remainder funds will go towards assisting with the repair of interior damages.

If you cannot donate, please share this fundraiser on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you soon when we all re-open again after PAUSE!

Open Streets - Streets for Social Distancing

Open Streets are available daily, 8 am to 8 pm (unless otherwise noted) for pedestrians and cyclists to use the roadbed of the street while maintaining social distancing. Opening hours may vary by location due to NYPD staffing.
