Where is Mickey? documents the impact of the  pandemic on a population in the center of New York City: the costumed performers who pose for photographs with tourists. 

"Covid-19 has devastated the economy of Times Square. Broadway was shut down, empty hotels, restaurants and offices are shuttered. Those trying to cater to tourists often outnumber the actual tourists. In a way, it is Times Square in its most stripped-down form: The lights and billboards are still there, and so are the workers who keep everything running. What’s missing is everyone else". By Emily Stewart Vox
