We here in New York City just entered Phase Two of what politicians in the United States like to call, ‘Flattening The Curve’ when it comes to the virus from hell.
While other states like Florida, Texas and Arizona , among others couldn’t wait for people to throw away their masks and party like you just don’t care, here in New York City , our Governor and mayor basically said, ‘Don’t even think about partying yet. Corona is still here and he hasn’t left yet.’
As a result, New Yorkers like the Sports Diva have to be creative with their 30 Plus Teams Tours.
Hello Long Island Railroad .
I could take the good old New York City subway down to 34th but since the Long Island Railroad is basically in my backyard (no really, I can see the Long Island Railroad IN MY BACKYARD!), why not take that for a daytrip to Manhattan , also known as ‘The City’ to those of us who live in the Outer Boroughs (aka, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Staten Island and Queens.)
I wanted to see for myself just how the city looked since we were under an 8pm -5am curfew imposed by our Mayor because some folks don’t seem to understand the difference between peacefully protesting and looting, but that’s a post for another day .
(The curfew ended a week or so ago by the way. So New York is back to being the ‘city that never sleeps.’)
Today, June 26th was all about riding comfortably and peacefully on the train as it passed by the Queens neighborhoods of Rosedale, Laurelton , Forest Hills, South Jamaica, Kew Gardens, Woodside and my own neighborhood of Locust Manor as it made its way past the skyscrapers of Manhattan on the way to one of the biggest transportation hubs in the United States , Penn Station .
As I made my way upstairs to 34th Street and saw all the stores filled with people , masks on , going about their businesses as if to say, ‘we see you Corona, you’ve been here long enough. Go away allready.’
As I returned home, after a day of shopping, I felt the same way also.
