Central Park’s Cleopatra’s Needle inches out the supertalls in this deceptive photo of a nearly empty Park Drive East yesterday. Yes, practicing social distancing, I biked against the heavy traffic in the park,
Fifth Avenue was so empty I biked the east side of the street from 59th Street to 23rd Street.
A quiet Flatiron District, looking northbound.
Trevor MacDermid and his daughter at Underground Signs.
Dry Dock 1, Brooklyn Navy Yard, Yes, it’s a New York City landmark.

  • Wash your hands and respect your friends, elders and neighbors by following Tony Fauci’s latest guidelines.
  • Ignore the so-called president’s lies and revisionist history of his belated, inept response to the crisis. He has blood on his hands. It’s his Katrina and recession/depression all wrapped into one.
