Normally this page would be full of events and happenings around town.
With Coronavirus causing most, if not all events and meetings to be canceled, we can only list the events taking place remotely, or with social distancing in mind.
Cheers for Essential Workers
Have you heard the noise at 7 p.m.? You’re not hearing things. Every night at 7 p.m., all New Yorkers are encouraged to cheer, applaud, bang pots, play music or make whatever noise they can to show appreciation for all those working on the frontlines and other essential workers. If they’re not already, encourage your neighbors to join the fun and let our heroes hear you loud and clear!
