About the Series: When the first lockdown went into place in New York City, I obeyed the rules and resisted the urge to take advantage of the newly-vacated streets. As time went on, the city's landscape - literally, architecturally, spiritually - kept changing even as many of us hunkered down. When restrictions lifted and I started walking around, the physical changes that were most glaring were those that were silent - homes vacated by neighbors who fled the city, shops that locked their doors and emptied their shelves, restaurants that shuttered for good...these once-thriving places have become merely spaces.
