Refusing to Say Goodbye

Buildings in Midtown Manhattan

"New York is still here, but it is also not. For those of us who have remained, the task seems to fall somewhere between caretaking — we will order pickup and takeout from the places that have served us so well, we will do our shopping for our neighbors  and refusing to let go. We ain't going nowhere. New York in this moment may be saying goodbye to us, but we refuse to say goodbye to New York."
