What’s Open On The Upper West Side — Tuesday 10/30 (Help Compile The List)

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

UPDATE 7:00 pm: AMAZING MUW reader Carol took it upon herself to breakdown the list below by neighborhood! If you’re trying to find out what’s open near you, it’s much easier to sort through. MANY THANKS! Scroll down to the bottom of this post to see the breakdown.

UPDATE 5:00 pm: I’m starting to think there’s more stuff open than there is closed. Lot’s of dining options in the neighborhood and I’ve gotten reports of numerous people from areas in Manhattan with no power making their way up here to enjoy our ample electricity.

UPDATE 2:25 pm: Still updating — continued thanks for all the contributions.

UPDATE 1:00 pm: 3 1/2 hours in and the list is getting super-long. Thanks to everyone for contributing — please keep the tips coming if you spot anything that isn’t already listed. Aside from no mass transit and damage from trees and other debris, the Upper West Side is in pretty good shape, all things considered. I’m getting constant reports of bustling activity in the neighborhood.

Here’s a list of businesses that are open on the Upper West Side.

If you’ve spotted something open in the neighborhood, whether it be a supermarket, restaurant, store, or whatever, let me know. E-mail alerts [at] myupperwest.com, post a comment below or on the MyUpperWest Facebook page, or tweet to @MyUpperWest and I’ll update this post as information comes in.

NOTE: Right now I’m just posting things as fast as they come in — may try and put them in some sort of organized order later this morning.

    Any word on Trader Joe’s? I am out of their Cookie Butter :)

  • MyUpperWest

    I don’t believe anyone has reported them being open. Just called and no one is picking up phone.

    Mmmmm… cookie butter…

  • http://www.50by25.com/ Laura

    Think Bloomberg would understand if I called 911 to report the current Cookie Butter shortage at my apartment?

    (COMPLETELY KIDDING, just in case anyone doesn’t get sarcasm.)

    Haven’t heard anything about banks.

    I assume you’re asking about banks with tellers, and not just ATMs, correct?
