Most New Yorkers might turn their nose up at Domino's Pizza, but the pie chain's Chelsea location was doing brisk business Sunday despite being across the street from the West 23rd Street bombing site.
On top of that, some customers were even giving the deliveryman grief because their orders were running late due to all the security in the area.
"People are mad because we're not doing delivery on time because it's too busy, and because of the barricade it's taking longer," said Masum Chowdhurry, the store's assistant manager. "You can't really satisfy everyone."
Domino's is the only restaurant on the block still open, he said. And he's been cranking out pies all day to keep up with the orders. A barber shop nearby has also opened its doors.
Asked if he felt safe Sunday, Chowdhurry said he felt safer than ever before.
"I felt like it's safer now, there's a lot of cops here," he said by phone. "We felt safer than before. It already happened, I don't think anything worse is going to happen."
He was at work Saturday night when the bomb exploded across the street. The NYPD and the FBI are investigating the explosion.
"We were safe, but I was scared nonetheless," Chowdhurry said. "One of our delivery guys was really close to the blast, but he's all right."
