The COVID-19 pandemic has been the cause of around 300,000 deaths in the US and over 1.6 million worldwide.
The pandemic has also led to the death of many businesses. Restaurants have been hit particularly hard with many layoffs and tons of places closing for good.
The famed 21 Club in New York City has been open (in various locations) since 1922 but it had to close its doors due to COVID-19 recently.

Katz’s Deli, the legendary eatery on New York’s Lower East Side has expanded for the first time in its 129 year history.
Since 1888, those delicious pastrami sandwiches were only available at the corner of East Houston and Ludlow Street. You can now get a fine sampling of their menu at the brand new DeKalb Market Hall in Brooklyn.

Early in 2016 I wrote about a very interesting and potentially useful communications network coming to New York City called LinkNYC.

Kim and I have been fans of Cirque du Soleil for quite some time. We’ve had the chance to see some of their shows like O, Alegria, Ovo, Wintuk and I’m pretty sure one other!
It’s been a bit harder to go to shows in recent years since most of them probably won’t appeal to little kids. The last show that Kim and I saw in a theater was for Lucas. We saw Yo Gabba Gabba a couple of years back! 🙂
I was definitely excited when I got invited to attend a performance of Cirque du Soleil Paramour at the Lyric Theater in NYC.

Well now paying for meters is about to change for the better.

When I see a payphone around New York City, I have to say that I’m always surprised. Who thought there were any left?
Pretty much everyone has a cell phone so the need for public phones is pretty much non-existent. (I could see them being useful in some areas for tourists though.)
A few days back an amazing, new communications network was launched in NYC that will replace the city’s payphones-
LinkNYC. Continue reading LinkNYC Launches- Offers FREE WiFi, Nationwide Calls & More
