Downtown Shutdown

“The City that never sleeps” would seem to have dozed off as all but the most essential workers have been staying behind closed doors since the arrival of the coronavirus.

Downtown Shutdown is a part of a larger story I have been working on to memorialize the affects the shutdown has had on NewYork. This series of images were captured on Wednesday May 27th, during the lunch hour.

I paid a visit to the nearly abandoned Brookfield Place in Lower Manhattan. With The shops remain closed, all but essential workers gone only a few of the stalls in the food hall are open.
