Heartwarming videos of tonight's citywide clap for essential workers

Advertising

New Yorkers across the five boroughs took to their windows and stoops to cheer on essential workers tonight.

At 7pm, they began clapping, whooping, hitting pots and pans and yelling out "You're saving lives!" 

The gesture was announced on Thursday by Karla Otto, international public relations agency, who told everyone to use the hashtag #ClapBecauseWeCare.

We don't know about you, but after watching these videos, we're even more proud to be a New Yorker.
