Quite a few videos have circulated since the coronavirus struck New York City. But NY Tough, by Convicts, has been praised by New Yorkers and New York-ophiles alike. Governor Andrew Cuomo reassured all of us that we’d make it through the pandemic because New York is no stranger to adversity. We are New York. We are New York Tough.
From the creators of the video:
“We can feel New York’s soul through our apartment walls: it’s the sound of our downstairs neighbor singing, of our upstairs neighbor dragging chairs across the floor. It’s the smell of our neighbor’s cooking wafting under the door, the sight of the policemen on the streets. It’s all of us––at one in our isolation, closer for our apartness––getting through this, together.”
