WHAT’S OPEN ON MONDAY? A RUNNING LIST OF UWS BUSINESSES

What stores and restaurants are open on the Upper West Side today even as Hurricane Sandy pummels the city?

We’ve begun a list below, and we need your help to expand it. If you hear that a place is open, let us know in the comments below, by emailing us at info@westsiderag.com, or send us info on twitter or facebook. Then we’ll post it here. It’s that simple. We will be updating the list throughout the day.

Update: In general, it’s a bad idea to go outside at all. This storm is definitely dangerous.
