In photos: Bedford Village slowly re-opens Monday
Though the commercial areas in Katonah, Cross River and Bedford Hills were up-and-running by Saturday, Bedford Village had only partial restorations over the weekend.
On Monday, there was a small crowd gathered in front of Bedford Gourmet—some ogling the slightly charred grilled meats that Bedford Gourmet co-owner Debbie Franzese was tending, some eyeing the utility crews on Route 22 that were causing a slight backup in traffic in the village.
While some village businesses are slowly re-opening, others that have been able to kept their doors open in the aftermath of super-storm Sandy.
"We've been out here grilling food since Saturday, said Franzese. After losing thousands of dollars of product last year after tropical storm Irene, she and her partner, Alex Walsh, purchased a generator and have been cooking and serving food to locals, the National Guard and utility crews since the weekend.
Power had been returning in stages, with many of the East side businesses powered up by Saturday, while other shops were still dark on Monday.
Marie Di Blasio was back to styling hair Monday at but said the business interruption was worse this time around.
"But we are alive, which is most important," she said.
Bedford Village Florist had a "Power on: We will open Tuesday" sign on the door; Alison Belknap was busy trying to get the heat on at Mrs. Monogram (where the presidential cup tally is still leaning toward Romney, by the way, though no votes were cast in the past week) but the store was open and in pristine condition.
The lines were long at the Village Green Deli, where owner Denise Macri had been since Sunday, getting ready with new product.
Connor Mullen, Ryan Luparello and Maxwell Shiro, Fox Lane High School juniors, were stopped for a snack outside the deli. They said they had been hanging out for a week and were looking forward to getting back to school.
They'll be back tomorrow, the Bedford Central District announced Monday.
