Driving Thru New York City During Coronavirus Was Freaky

10w ago


At the time of this writing (and filming of the video - March 21st, 2020) the effects of COVID-19 are experienced worldwide. Thousands have died and hundreds of thousands have been infected. In the United States, the number of cases have ramped up in a frightening rate. Mitigation methods like social distancing, working from home, closing of retail stores, etc. have been put in place in an attempt to slow the massive growth rate of this outbreak.

How this actually looks in practice is surreal to say the least, and I drove to New York City, recently dubbed "The epicenter of Coronavirus in the United States" to find out how "The City That Never Sleeps" became something totally different.

WARNING: You should minimize travel during this terrible pandemic and practice social distancing and good hygiene. I traveled into the epicenter of Coronavirus with no intention of making any stops or even stepping outside of my car. Please do not attempt!


I hope everyone out there reading this is currently in good health and socially distancing themselves. Please let me know how you all are coping with this global pandemic.

Stay safe and healthy!

    • I find it always helps to focus on everything one day at a time. It does get pretty quiet, so that's why it's always great to go out for fresh air and just being outside while still practicing social distancing

  • I live in Brooklyn and work in Manhattan my usual commute with no traffic takes me a little over 30 minutes. In a traffic day it takes me at least an hour. Now it takes me less then 20 minutes. I work in an essential business. I'm happy to see the city is empty and people are taking it serious. And me as a sports car love the empty City it's pedal to the metal from light to light
