I’m guessing 2022 will go down in history as the year New Yorkers got out of their chairs and began to live again. After seemingly countless false starts declaring “New York City is back!”, it wasn’t until later in 2022 that most New Yorkers felt Covid—and all of its constantly morphing iterations—had become an acceptable part of life.
Most of us got vaccinated, a few times, and as deaths and severe cases of Covid declined dramatically, the five boroughs were more than ready to hang out in groups, laugh with crowds, dine with strangers, dance with randos, and be part of the dynamic culture that compelled many of us to move and stay here. Yes, 2022 was the year we kicked many of our chairs to curb and declared an end to our confined and sedentary existences.
This post and these chairs are dedicated to the nurses, doctors, first responders, supermarket employees, delivery workers, liquor store cashiers, and every human being who put themselves at risk to help and take care of and serve others. Thank you from all of us. Please take a load off, and have a seat.
