New York City is empty

New York, a city many says is “never sleep,” is now empty due to the coronavirus epidemic. I was in midtown Manhattan. And I’ve seen something I’ve never seen before.

Grand Central Station / 42nd street

There are no tourists in the city, I have seen very few pedestrians and a few cars only. Even – and here’s the big word – find a parking lot! This is simply unimaginable. This is a must-see, and, of course, for a journalist has a duty to show.

The photos:
