What a difference a day or evening makes! Just a little over six months (on the 11-27-2020 which was the Eve of Thanksgiving
) ago on the UWS
, a number of folks were looking out their windows to cheer and applaud the balloons
being blown up for the 2020 Macys Thanksgiving Parade
(an example can be seen in the image atop this post.
Thousands of people crowded the area to get an up close view of the annual Thanksgiving Eve event. At that time the biggest concern NYC seemed to have was whether or not the balloons would be able to fly because of the prevailing high winds.
Last night many NYC residents (like myself) looked out their windows or stood on their terraces (some can be seen in the next series of pictures) to participate in the nightly #ClapBecauseWeCare

In doing so our concerns were much greater than that of would or wouldn't a Macy's ballon be allowed to "fly"?
Ultimately, the 2019 Macy's balloons were able to be off the ground albeit much lower than usual, as evidenced in the following photos.
Now, hopefully, the same fate (ability to go on) will occur here in NYC where we have been in lockdown since around 3/22/2020, but we will in time, thanks to the due diligence of our first responders, health care professional and essential workers be able to do what we were able to do prior to lockdowns, even if it is at a slower more monitored pace than it had been before the COVID-19 monster descended on us.
ONCE AGAIN, BRAVO ESSENTIAL WORKERS, BRAVO!
