Summer 2021 last minute internship

I am a sophomore from the New York area and don't have anything lined up for this summer yet. Will it be okay for me to cold email boutiques around my area and ask for an unpaid summer internship?

I was promised an internship at a PE firm but the guy who gave in good word for me got fired and they the firm has not replied to my emails/calls. I look forward to your responses

You're right. Makes me look desperate right? Thank you! Firms would be alright with me cold-emailing them right? I have a template ready to shoot out and potentially get 15 minute calls
