Lorem Ipsum, the impact of the virus was compared to 9/11; now, by week’s end, it is being said to be “worse than 9/11.” Clearly it will be much worse—in terms of affecting more people, affecting the economy, affecting travel. And the effects will last longer and be felt across the country and the globe. Subway use here is down almost 20%. All museums and libraries in Manhattan closed yesterday or today. Who knows when anything will reopen. Apple will close all their stores, at least in North America; they plan to keep them closed for two weeks.

There are lines outside of big supermarkets on Manhattan—Trader Joes and Whole Foods. The Lifethyme health food store on Sixth Ave. had no line, and it had most food, but there was no meat or rice and just a tiny bit of (gluten free) pasta. Fresh foods and vegetables were in full supply. At the Union Square farmers’ market, there was plenty to buy, but fewer vendors. Had the vendors left by the time I got there at 4:00, had they already sold out, or did they never show up to begin with?

Deaths with no funerals. Before long there will be refrigerator trucks.

Facts will be at play – they are long out of fashion here. Americans do not like people to say no to them.    to the Bay Area 

 

Things are changing fast here.

Most of my staff have been laid off or on reduced hours as of Friday    to Vermont

 

The city is quiet, even the normally noisy playground across the street, and on a beautiful warm spring day.  to Boston
