BetaNYC is thrilled to announce that we’re now partnering with North Brooklyn Neighbors and North Brooklyn Mutual Aid to grow and maintain Essentially Open North Brooklyn.
Essentially Open North Brooklyn is a community mapping tool that helps residents identify businesses in Greenpoint and Williamsburg that are providing services during this pandemic. North Brooklyn Neighbors published an early version of this map and it was viewed more than 26,000 times!
Through our partnership with North Brooklyn Neighbors and North Brooklyn Mutual Aid, the map now features more than 600 business and local service providers!
This map is only as good as the data in it. Help us keep it up to date by updating information about essential businesses and vital services that are open.
If you’re an elected official, community board, community group, business improvement district, or mutual aid association and want a map, we’re here to help.
Please express your interest or send us your data or email us at < firstname.lastname@example.org >.
Essentially Open North Brooklyn is built on top of our Covid-19 response work with partners in the East Village – EVGrieve, Who’s Open Queens, and with the NYC Food Policy Center at Hunter College.
