We are pleased to announce, in an encouraging sign, that more essential businesses have re-opened in Lincoln Square this week! Our neighborhood remains strong and the gradual re-opening of businesses is a hopeful sign. It is like dipping your toes in an icy ocean--once you test it, with local support, you will jump in! Seven businesses have re-opened joining the many others that are continuing to serve our community.

For those of you who don’t have access to washers and dryers, the opening of Excellent Cleaners, which includes a laundromat, is welcome news. We suspect that many of you have been washing your laundry in the tub to look spiffy for your Zoom meetings!
