A Walk Through the Empty Streets of Manhattan

With most New Yorkers hunkered down through the epidemic, the streets of the city have become terrifyingly quiet. It is indeed unnatural seeing one of the most vibrant cities in the world brought to a complete stop. I took a quick walk (in my full-body protective gear: cap, mask, and gloves)  to capture some of the street scenes and the shuttered storefronts (see below for a collection of closing signs from different brand stores).
