‘Pricing Out Mom & Pop’: Find Out What The Future Holds For Small Business At This Community Board Webinar

The economy is in for a wild ride this summer as New York City climbs its way out of quarantine. An estimated one-third of small businesses might close by the end of the pandemic (whenever that is) while residential rents, which dropped by 21% across the city, are finally starting to stabilize. Small stores are expected to have the hardest time recovering in 2021. 

Find out more about how the housing market will affect small businesses at the ”Pricing Out Mom & Pop” webinar on Tuesday, March 30. The forum will feature a mix of local officials and business owners, moderated by Kyle Athayde, chairperson of Community Board 6 (which covers Midtown East). 

Panelists include: Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer, Jessica Walker of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, Brian Owens of the Restaurant Row East Alliance, Peter Walsh of Coogan’s Irish pub, Peter Arndsten of the Columbus-Amsterdam BID, Jessica Lappin of the Downtown Alliance, Rose Pierre-Louis of the McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research at NYU and Sharon Hershkowitz of Balloon Saloon. 

You can submit questions for the panel in advance here. The forum is free and starts at 6:30 p.m. For more information go here
