Good morning, East Village.

Council Member Margaret S. Chin has sent a letter offering a list of Sandy resources. You can find it below.

The Grompers Houses on the Lower East Side are among those without heat. ““I am mostly concerned that I have been freezing,” says a 79-year-old resident. [DNA Info]

Some Village businesses are unhappy that “Smash” is filming on their block while they’re still recovering from Sandy. [NY Post]

“Russ & Daughters, quite possibly NYC’s most famous appetizing store, will be hosting a Red Cross fundraiser tonight in conjunction with the Astor Center. There are two 75 minute tastings (starting at 6:00 & 7:30 this evening).” [East Village Eats]

Here’s how Mini Thai Cafe made it through the storm: “The chef jumped back into his car, drove to their home in Woodside, Queens, and gathered flashlights, lamps and two inverters. When he returned, they set up lights connected to their car battery, and Mr. Roeng cooked food on the still-working gas stove.” [Wall Street Journal]

A resident of Peter Cooper Village rode out the storm in a hotel room with her sister, her brother-in-law and their twin 7-year-olds, and her parents. [NY Times]

“A man who complained about being beaten up in Greenwich Village was stabbed by a second man who didn’t want him talking, sources said.” [NY Post]

At 84 East 10th Street, there’s construction at the former home of the Off-Broadway Theater, “where the New York Poets Theatre performed in the early 1960s, featuring Diane Di Prima, LeRoi Jones, and Michael McLure.” [Jeremiah’s Vanishing NY]

Masak, Sao Mai, and Bobwhite kick off Fork in the Road’s 100 reasons to dine downtown. [Fork in the Road]

“Empellón Cocina has rescheduled the Day of the Dead taco dinner that was delayed by Hurricane Sandy for Friday, November 9.” [Grub Street]
