COVID-19 in NYC

New York City’s once busiest neighborhoods are now mostly desolate leaving nothing but deafening silence in its wake. Walking around different areas of Manhattan, the occasional passerby on the streets are either people who have no choice but to go outside, or those who have no where else to go. Observing this bizarre new normal reminds me of the stories my parents used to tell me about living in Hell’s Kitchen, which was one of Manhattan’s most dangerous neighborhoods in the 1980s. Working as a photojournalist, I have covered numerous situations where danger was present and the attention of the media was unwanted. This is the first time I genuinely felt unsafe doing my job. This is ongoing coverage of the coronavirus pandemic in New York City.
