The circumstances of our current reality in dealing with COVID-19 has been hard on everyone, including our local business community, making our Turtle Bay business members’ survival of utmost importance. It is sad to walk throughout our neighborhood on 1st – 2nd – 3rd – Lexington Avenues and the side streets from East 42nd to 57th Streets, noticing many businesses not just closed, but gone.
The local shops, restaurants and businesses, are not only providing their valuable services, they are also instilling new buying behaviors and dining patterns for our safety. Therefore, our Association’s hope is that we carry on shopping and dining locally in addition to long after all the quarantine orders lift.
Please take a few minutes to visit the directory of our Business Members, many are offering discounts to our membership. Let’s all make it a priority to carry this camaraderie and togetherness into our post-pandemic world by shopping, dining locally and supporting our business members.
