A Brooklyn Heights Without Tourists

A walk along the waterfront yesterday (while practicing social distancing) was eerie to say the least. New Yorkers love to complain about tourists, don’t we? We may want fewer blocking our path while they’re gazing up at, what, the sky? We may wish they would walk faster, come on, we have some place to go! We may wish they wouldn’t flood our cafes and, take an hour to order why don’t ya?

But did we ever imagine how it would feel if there were none of them?

    I think I’ve noticed a lot less helicopter noise, too.

    Less noise and emissions from motor vehicles as well.

    Gotta say, as a Fitbit user, I got my highest sleep score yet the night before last (Friday into Saturday), because of the dearth of traffic roaring up Hicks Street. I got a 91! Best night of sleep in months!
