It feels like Christmas Day outside. No traffic. I saw something I have never seen before, officers patrolling Astor Place this afternoon!

There were more people in East River Park today (Sunday) than I've ever seen. Just goes to show how vital that park is to people's health as we need fresh air and space to survive. Perhaps this will influence the plan to totally destroy the place for 10 years.
