A lot of the establishments on Second Ave in the nineties are getting slammed pretty hard with the subway construction mess. It's eliminating a good portion of foot traffic these places rely upon.
There are some great spots like Nicks, Nina's and Buddha BBeeQ smack in the middle of it all. They could definitely use some local support.
Here are some pictures of the mess: http://thelaunchbox.blogspot.com/
