Updating: Here's a map of what's open in the East Village
A volunteer effort led by the East Village Community Coalition (EVCC) along with residents Perry Leung and Paul Gale has created an interactive map of what's open in the neighborhood during the COVID-19 crisis. (The site is designed by Zhi He of BetaNYC.)
The map includes telephone numbers, links to delivery and Instagram, and business-specific details (like local discounts and contactless pickup options). There's also information, confirmed via phone, about whether 13-plus supermarkets in the East Village accept SNAP/EBT and have immunocompromised hours/senior discounts.
The rest of the data comes from several EVG posts (like this one and this one) along with fact-checking calls and Instagram research done by the volunteers.
Moving forward, EVIMA will help the group maintain the accuracy of the existing data, and expand the number of businesses included on the map.
If you are a business owner and want to add or edit your information, then please fill out this form here. Find more details at this link.
And now the map...

This is incredible. Thanks!
DUAL IS BACK!!
As of yesterday - tentative opening times 11:00 or so until 6:00.
Kalustyan's was the fill-in, but their prices make it a plague store.
Thanks. Is there any way to access the map in a larger window? This is kind of hard to navigate.
Absolutely fantastic, thank you. Btw, I noticed Brodo is listed at 6th and 1st,but they are on 12th and 1st? Unless they moved recently?
Try accessing at the EVCC site (link is in the post):
This is really great - thank you!
@anonymous 9:02 — map creator here! http://whatsopenev.com should be the friendliest way to view it.

We picked up a birthday cake from Soma on 10th and C, it was beautiful and delicious. Highly recommended.
Looks like Downtown Bakery on 1st Ave & 4th St is now open for takeout. They've installed a new plexiglass window at the door.
@12:38 — thanks for the tip! Downtown Bakery has been added to the map
Dunkin on First Ave & 6th is back open. No ice cream at this time.
Emmy Squared Pizza on First Ave & 5th St says they'll be open Friday, May 22. I think it will be take out and delivery.
