For the last few weeks I've been loving the way my East Harlem block has united in support of the health care workers and other essential frontline workers - postal carriers, grocery workers, deliver people, etc... I really look forward to hanging out my 7th story window and seeing my neighbors across the street - who I don't know - do the same, ringing bells, clapping, whooping it up. A really great side effect is the fondness I now feel for the people in the windows facing me, even if they're just far enough away that I likely wouldn't recognize them on the sidewalk below.
