Creepy.

 

I was down there yesterday, and the best I could compare it to was Christmas Day, but with construction workers doing their thing. The feeling was ominous.

The wife reports that mid-day today there was someone with a camera on a tripod in the middle of Government Street near the Bard and Banker doing yoga. So there's at least some activity downtown still.

Outside exercise is specifically allowed. I'm not sure that includes videotaping yoga in the middle of the street...

There’s a viral video of Spanish cops chasing down a woman jogging. It’s quite something.

Eerie, depressing and humbling is how I would describe my morning commute today.  

 

This can't go on for long.
