Coronavirus:  What’s New York Without Broadway, the Met, Carnegie Hall, and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade? We are about to find out!

The Met

Dear Commons Community,

Today many of New York City’s cultural treasures announced closings out of  concern for the spread of the coronavirus.  Governor Andrew Cuomo made an emergency declaration prohibiting gatherings of 500 or more people.  As a result, performances at all Broadway theaters, the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, and even the St. Patrick’s Day Parade scheduled for Tuesday have been cancelled or postponed for at least two weeks and probably more.

The word in Manhattan is out – “stay home.”
