New Yorkers share remarkable images of the city as it slowly prepares to reopen

Snapshots of a city under lockdown


For the last few weeks, we've asked you to share some of the most arresting images that you've captured in New York during these unprecedented times. From startling signage to barren streets to ubiquitous face masks, you've shared some really striking snapshots of a city on pause. Each photo has been a powerful entry point into New Yorkers' personal experiences during this oddly communal time of isolation.

See some of our favorites from the last week below, and share your view of the locked down city with us using the hashtag #YourLockdownLife for the remainder of the time New York remains shutdown.

As a lifelong Brownstone Brooklynite, I am so proud to see how our neighborhood has metaphorically bonded together—like so many others. #StoopStories is actually a resurrected documentary project from over 10 years ago. Through these #familyportraits, I’m happy to bring a tiny bit of joy to #BoCoCaFamilies who are safely staying at home while I get my solo walks in. Thanks to the originators of the larger movement, @carasoulia and @findingforty in Needham, MA for for inspiration! // @thefrontstepsproject #thefrontstepsprojectbrooklyn . .
