Description (Dublin Core)
The once bustling and lively city of New York, thanks to Covid-19, transformed into a deserted and helpless concrete island. I captured this photo in May of 2020, a depressing time for so many in our city, country, and world. If I had taken an identical photo in the same spot at the same time 3 months before, I would have quite frankly been run over. The concept of one of the most crowded compact cities being abandoned was unthinkable as well as symbolic to the unimaginable and tragic things this pandemic has brought.
A photo taken in the middle of a once hectic avenue in NYC, captured in the early stages of the Pandemic. A time when all was unknown and the relatable feeling of isolation and polarization began to really sink in.
