When daily walks around the neighborhood feel like scenes from The Walking Dead or Twelve Monkeys, it’s hard to argue with people who want to get out of Dodge. 1 in 42 New Yorkers has contracted the virus. 1 in 403 New Yorkers is dead from COVID-19. Even in places that are seeing second waves for not sheltering-in-place or wearing masks, their numbers are only half as bad as NYC. Why would anyone want to stay when there is now talk of reopening here in NYC, too? The New York we knew and loved is gone, if not for good, for a very long time to come. The kicker… New York is doing much better than many of the other states getting its numbers down.
