This is a list of laundromats and dry cleaners still open in the East Village



Several laundromats/dry cleaners have temporarily closed in recent days in the neighborhood, prompting this inventory of places that remain open.

Some places didn't have their hours posted. Some places had their hours listed, but then closed earlier than stated. Some places were open one day, then not the next. So all hours are subject to change. It's best to CALL AHEAD before lugging your laundry to any place on the list.

Here's the in-progress list in alphabetical order (with thanks to Stacie Joy and Steven for scouting help) ...

EVGrieve,

I have been reading your wonderful blog for years now and have never written to tell you how much I enjoy and appreciate it. I'm writing now to commend you for the wonderful service you provide to the community. The blog has been an invaluable source of information for me and others in this time of Covid-19 crisis.

Thank you.

You forgot Lois cleaners, 3rd ave & 10th. I believe their plan is to be open a few days a week. I forget which days.

I walked by First Avenue Laundry Center and it is not open. I’m worried about Ann, the sweet lady who works there.

EVG, thank you, thank you for helping everyone clean up their act!

I live near K&W on East 11th and have not seen it open since last Saturday afternoon. There is no answer when you call. If anyone has seen or heard from the owner Jack, please let us know. We are worried about him.

VH McKenzie said...

Echoing pmd523 - I've followed you, grieve, for a very long time. I pop in and pop out for stretches, but am always grateful that you are here. YOU DO GOOD WORKS!!!!
Stay healthy and know that you are loved!

Agreed, EV Grieve is best 'hood blog in the city. Community and moderation is perfect too, just the right amount of anarchy, grump, and grace.

Stuff was starting to stink. Thank you

Giovanni said...

Who could have ever predicted that in 2020 we would be stressing out over where to buy toilet paper and do the laundry? Thanks to EV Grieve, we can all stress out just a little bit less now.

Grieve said...

Thank you everyone! Please take care!

Nope, Michelle has shut down operations last Friday.

So glad to know we don't have to buy underwear everytime we run out of clean underwear, such a relief!I'm sure some of us will be doing little laundry at home and why not. Thank you so much Grieve, Stacie and Steven for scouting help.
You are the Best
The Greatest Blog in the World! 🙏
Everyone stay safe

I think you might mean the one between 7th & St. Marks because the kiddo did our laundry at this one on April 1st between 10:30 and 1 pm.

Bubbles n Go closed just now - didn't see a sign about updated hours or anything.
And Gentle Wash won't let you in once it hits 530 at least, despite their hours still saying til 8pm.

Liox Cleaners on Allen St has dry cleaning and laundry by delivery.

Hi, I run M&N Cleaners on 14th St at 3rd Ave near Union Square. We are open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9AM to 3PM. Accepting wash & fold laundry, dry cleaning, and dress shirt services. Dry cleaning and shirts are running on a delayed schedule for now due to bare-bones staff - may take 7-10 days as opposed to the usual same day service. But we are here if you need us. I do ask that everyone cover their face and social distance as much as practically possible as our family includes highly vulnerable individuals, partners, and caregivers. My best to all our neighbors
