After nearly three months of shut down and isolation, New York City the City that never sleeps is slowly waking up.
Like the fictional character Rip Van Wrinkle who woke up to find the world a different place, New Yorkers are venturing outside to find a few changes in the City.
Gone are the days of crowded parks and restaurants. Everything now is about social distancing, wearing mask and hand washing.
Even in apartments tenants are reminded of the new normal etiquette when riding an elevator.
We have all seen the signs in public or restaurants bathrooms reminding us to wash our hands. Well, now those same reminders are outside in parks.
And then there’s the pesky face masks. Don’t leave home without it less you risk being denied entry into a building or public transportation.
Just in case you are unsure as to how to wear the mask, there is always a display to help you. If by chance you want to eat outside, but not certain where to sit and eat, there are signs to remind you.
Below are just a few of the signs New Yorkers and tourist will see to assist them in navigating the new normal in the City.
While the social setting of the City has changed, one thing seemed to remain the same and that was the beach. There wasn’t much social distancing. That said the beach wasn’t too crowded either.
