NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Some East Village businesses are struggling in the wake of last week’s explosion and fire that leveled three buildings.

Just two doors down from the blast site at Second Avenue and East Seventh Street, Moishe’s Bake Shop is open, but hurting for business, 1010 WINS’ Glenn Schuck reported.

At one point Monday morning, the bakery had seen just two customers, a sign of what the neighborhood faces in the coming days.

“We have no customers really,” the manager said. “On a Monday, I’d have a lot more than two people, that’s for sure. So I figure by time we come back from Passover, everything should be back to normal.”

A block south, Satinder Sharma is still waiting for gas service in the building housing his Brick Lane Curry House restaurant.

“Worst winter. Worst February,” he told WCBS 880’s Paul Murnane. “We’re looking forward to March. Things were getting better. The weather got better. And then this happened.

“My last conversation with landlord was that the earliest I can expect is mid this week, maybe even longer.”

Consolidated Edison, city Office of Emergency Management and Fire Department crews are working around the clock to remove the debris while continuing their investigation.

Two people were killed and 22 were injured in Thursday’s explosion, which city officials suspect was caused by a gas leak.

Three businesses were also destroyed — Sushi Park, Pommes Frites and Sam’s Deli.
