New York Bounces Back


The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a multitude of widespread negative effects across New York City. Nearly a million people in the city have contracted the disease, and more than 30,000 people have died from it. The virus dramatically altered life in the city.

Over a year and a half later, life in New York is returning to a new version of normalcy. More than 4.5 million residents have been vaccinated, restaurants are reopening, and city streets are filled with noise again. The city and its residents continue to prove that in the face of adversity they will come back stronger than ever.

This project explores the resilience of the people who call New York City home.
