Adam Weprin, the owner of the still-shuttered Bridge Cafe, describes the situation in the South Street Seaport right now: "The whole area is a ghost town...The difference between 9/11 and this? [After] 9/11, we had the phones ringing off the hook, with people saying, 'Oh, we want to support restaurants that are closed.' People don't even know that we are closed. People have no clue that this corner of Manhattan has been hit so badly." [USA Today]
