I do not agree that we were putting the pandemic behind us in June; we were adapting to it as we still are. We would not have had all of the protocols in place if we were putting the pandemic behind us. The fact is, there are very few people who can see Central Park from where they live who are not vaccinated. That and evolving science has allowed us to start living with the virus instead of remaining locked in our homes. That is what we are celebrating. We have worked out what we can do safely in the densest place in the country, and how to go about doing it. One of those things was this sort of celebration, another, right across the lawn, is SITP, and another, a few blocks away is Pass Over. I don't think things look very different now. At this point, there are still challenges. There was an article in the paper yesterday that I am linking below because I think it speaks to why we are having trouble wrapping our heads around things right now.
