We recently asked New York readers to share scenes from their daily lives during the coronavirus pandemic for a new open-ended series we hope will help all of us see beyond our limited perspectives amid this unprecedented and often isolating experience. Here is another collection of your images. We hope you will continue to share your own scenes with us by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org. View the previous installment here, or browse the series archive here.
Regarding the above image, reader Huiting captions, “Drove 35 miles from Manhattan to Morristown to wave to his 80 year old parents from outside their home. They are constantly asking when we can have a meal together, but we can’t risk giving them the virus.”
“Life in Seattle pieces.”
“Scene from the pharmacy.”
“I’m normally a bartender in graduate school, but I’m temporarily managing and helping at the restaurant I’ve worked at for seven years. You can see me batching delivery cocktails in the photo above. The best part of my week is bagging groceries (pictured below) for my co-workers who I wave to from six feet away. The restaurant has been providing their employees with food every Friday. The worst part is the eerie commute home to Inwood from Midtown East.”
“Whispering into the void.”
“As seen through my window on Wednesday night. A trio of musicians playing Carly Rae Jepsen’s “I Really Really Really Like You.” On 8th Street in Park Slope. Not sure what brought them out besides the weather but I was grateful for a moment of levity.”
“The Westside Community Garden is packed with hundreds and hundreds of tulips, and this is the way we get to look at them. Honestly, though, I feel like more people stop and appreciate them (and hopefully the work that goes into maintaining this lovely little oasis) than I’ve noticed in more than a decade of living up here on the Upper West Side.”
“Finally biked into Manhattan to see it — saw this surreal wedding photo shoot happening in Times Square.”
“This pic from Brooklyn Bridge Park (essentially our backyard) says everything.”
“That’s Cher in a mask!”
