Want more bleak numbers? Take your pick: About 1,200 restaurants have permanently shuttered since March. The city has around 600,000 fewer jobs than a year ago. About one-third of the city’s small businesses may never reopen.But, of course, it’s not just about numbers.It’s the vitality of the city that has been struck down.
