The status of some South Street Seaport bars five weeks after Sandy

A few weeks go, we reported that most of the South Street Seaport bars were still closed for business in the Sandy aftermath.  We took another visit there recently and are unhappy to report that not much has improved.  Of the bars closed three weeks ago, Heartland Brewery, Fresh Salt, Stella, Keg 229, Bin 220, Nelson Blue and the Paris Cafe, all remain closed and most entrances to those bars indicate “Restricted Use Only”.  A couple of photos below.

This is Fresh Salt, now completed boarded up.
This was the main bar area of Hearltand Brewery. You can see the outline in the floor toward the rear of the room where the physical bar was.

If you know a more detailed status of any of the bars listed above, please drop us a note.
