Living in New York City this past year has been an act of love, resistance and resilience. Plainly speaking, it has been hard. Day in and day out I walked to the clinic wondering how we would get to the other side. Sadly, for many others it didn’t make sense to stay in the city and they packed up and left. Thousands upon thousands have supposedly left the city. Some have left for the suburbs, others left to other states.
For some of us who have stayed in the city, we are looking at our beloved city wondering what is next. I’m walking around the city looking at the highrises thinking of how there are still do many being built. Yet, who will occupy them?
There will be newcomers. That I do not doubt. There will be shifts in the population. I myself will be looking to see if there are decreases in the rental market prices. New York reinvents itself every so often. We will do so again and rise to the occassion. That I am sure of.
