RED HOOK - A business in Red Hook remains shuttered more than six weeks after Sandy hit, and surrounding store owners say it's affecting them, too.

Fairway won't be open for business until February or March, and the loss is having a ripple effect on other small businesses in the area. Since the market is shuttered for now, less people have been shopping at nearby stores.

Business owners have put together a map of Red Hook showing which businesses are open in hopes of drumming up more foot traffic.
