Scenes From Northern Manhattan During #StayHome

I’m used to roaming the city. Taking a subway, bus or ferry to any neighborhood in the five boroughs, in search of architecture to be explored and photographed. That changed in mid-March, as it did for all New Yorkers. Below some scenes taken during (properly social distanced) fresh air breaks in Inwood.

Nurses who were set to graduate went right to work at the Ryan Larkin Field Hospital, a temporary hospital set up in an indoor soccer field for Columbia University. An email went around to neighbors inviting them to join in (from a distance) on a surprise graduation ceremony for the nurses. Hit play to hear the cheering.
