“New York must reinvent itself”
(New York) This is no longer the city that never sleeps. In the evening, its streets are deserted, as are its theaters, restaurants and bars.

But what will become of the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, in the short and medium term, after its deconfinement, which will not occur before June 13?
