I had a chance to be in a NYC last two days. Boy-o-boy. This place looks like ghost city comparing to the situation from before.
Below are a few pics illustrating situation.

A view north from 42nd street onto Times Square a place where was hard to walk normally because thousands of people around the clock.

Times Square.

... but Naked Cowboys was trying to get back in business. I think that his come back will be extremely hard due to absolute lack of people.

BTW it wasn't really too warm yesterday on Times Square so hats off to Naked Cowboy for risking his health.

AMC movie theater on W34th street. Are they going out of business or getting ready for the next "peaceful" demonstration?

Great documentary style work Jack. I guess the cowboy is a street artist, he will have a difficult time making money these days. Or maybe that's why he is naked now. TFS!
Respect. Observe. Capture. Enjoy.

Ha. This is good one. Naked Cowboy naked because his business is dead.
No, Michael. Naked Cowboy became to be "Times Square resident" and its landmark good several years ago when economy was still doing well. Of course, we can tell that his business wasn't doing well since he started and now, after many years in business he is still unable to buy new clothes.

Here is his photo taken back in 2011:

That is really interesting to see. Every time I walked in Times Square you could hardly walk. I do hope that the businesses, theaters and such survive and that the people employed by various enterprises make it through these trying times.

I think, Winston, many of them won't survive. and this is not in New York only.
Thousands of businesses (not only show business related) will no longer stay.
This is very sad. This is personal tragedy for thousands of people around the world.
