Summer in Quarantined New York, Part 9

Summer in Quarantined New York, Part 9

Part of this particular edition of my ongoing Summer in Quarantined New York series was taken on a rainy and chilly August afternoon in Forest Hills. The second part was taken on a gorgeous August afternoon and evening stroll through Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. Check out photos below.

We could use even more tolerance these days, don’t you think?

Rainy day pandemic selfie. Of course, wearing masks with beards is a little odd — but I’m not an idiot. Right now, wearing masks keeps everyone safe.
