The City #25

Well, it is coming to the end of August, and, well, the City is empty! I’ve spent 5 summers in New York City and it seems to be that this month is the emptiest of any I’ve experienced. Now, I well know that when I write, “empty,” that it is an exaggeration, but getting a seat on the subway, taxing around in slight traffic, quickly finding a parking place, walking along and not bumping into as many people makes it seem “empty.”
My doctor even said he has no idea to where all the people went.
In a couple of weeks, however, schools will have begun and most people will have returned from their vacations. Once again, New York life will return to “normal.”
