March 17- 29, 2020 . Posting six short slideshows of the government’s economic shut down of mid town Manhattan.
Part 1 – The Signs. The China Virus shuttered the restaurants (and theatres) in midtown Manhattan, I found the many signs posted on the doors and windows, to go from hopeful to resignation … as the reality took hold.
Part 2. Boarded Store fronts- The empty once vibrant businesses, once inviting business (open-to-view) were papered and boarded over with a sad resignation (or fear of looting).
Part 3 – Empty Chairs- The emptiness, before the windows were boarded up or covered with paper, as though the emptiness was too sore a wound to be left uncovered.
Part 4 – Street Scenes – As the city shut down more each day. Never like the city’s ad campaign: “Don’t be afraid of anyone”. Someone managed to improve on the message – look close:
Part 5 – Street scenes 2 –the empty streets offered up the unique and absurd
Part 6- My first day out ( March 17th) I went down to Battery Park/ Ground Zero I thought the stranded tourists might still be able to wander lower Manhattan. Nope. The Statue of Liberty was closed. Saw a couple of tourists taking pictures at the Battery … Then, at Ground Zero I found the memorial pools chained off. Why? Its outdoors. Decided to back to midtown. Itself – a growing WASTELAND.
The ene-media is predicting this “might’ drag out thru the summer, right up til – surprise,surprise – the NOVEMBER elections. Did the soc/commie/progs finally find a way to destroy us from within? Gotta consider, though, did the government wonks actually think this meltdown/shutdown through? OR are they so focused on the destruction of our President – that they are willing to destroy our country?
