(NECN: John Moroney, Boston) - Several businesses along Boylston Street in Boston closed down as authorities investigated the Boston Marathon bombings.
But this weekend, those same businesses are reopening and starting to recover with some help from the people who live and work in the area.
Of course, the process has been more difficult for some establishments.
Forum, a restaurant near the site of the second bombing, plans to open in the near future but hasn't been able to welcome customers back just yet.
Fortunately, a Newbury Street restaurant called Cafeteria is lending a hand.
The owners there are welcoming Forum to seat larger parties and events at Cafeteria and use Forum's waitstaff to serve them. The arrangement will last the next couple months as Forum gets back up and running.
