Broadway Blues

May 29 on a rainy and chilly holiday weekend. A short walk on Broadway between 103rd and 97th Streets showed some of the lasting effects of the pandemic.

Leaving the subway at 103rd and Broadway.

Mangoes for sale
The Mexican Festival Restaurant, a lively and popular restaurant and bar on the corner of Broadway and 102nd Street, permanently closed

The Metro Diner on Broadway and 100th Street reopened and added an enclosed outdoor dining space. No one was sitting there in the rain.

This convenience store on Broadway and 98th Street closed during the pandemic. On Election Day 2020 I photographed its shutter painted with “Vote Trump” in large letters. The storefront is still vacant six months later.
