At 7 pm New Yorkers have been going to their windows and balconies to make noise and cheer all the essential workers, medical experts and personnel, grocers, delivery-people, etc, who make life under Covid bearable, possible, even. Most evenings I can’t see where all the noise is coming from (my wife and I joke that it’s applause for our cooking as we’re usually sitting down to dinner when it happens). From my rooftop eyrie a week and a half ago I got to see it from a whole new perspective.

I actually tried getting their attention to okay my picture-taking but they were so engrossed in each other that they never noticed me.
Riverside Park’s as far West as you can go in NYC and much less packed a couple of weeks ago than Central Park (also people were much more likely to be wearing masks and making it clear that they were keeping their distance).
