    Really cool that my company (2,000 people worldwide) is refusing to take a stance on COVID-19. Main messaging is stay home “if you feel afraid” which is basically a fear tactic. Insanely irresponsible considering every employee can work remotely.

    Very good things.

    My company is still optional WFH, but our main client right now is Google and they have a mandatory, month-long WFH policy for all 100k of their employees, so this week has been way more calm than usual.

    Flying to New Zealand tomorrow. So curious to what I will be coming back to at the end of the month

    Rumors be going around that NYC will institute some kind of quarantine but I call bullshit. I could see public transportation getting axed bc of how absolutely disgusting and crowded it is.

    What would happen if the subway system was closed? Is that possible or even being discussed?

    How else would people be able to commute to work, say from Brooklyn into Manhattan? Doesn’t seem realistic that people could walk or bike those distances.

    It won’t close but as it warms up people will lean more on biking/walking obviously.

    A guy in my building just preordered an electric VanMoof bicycle. Things like that are going to become increasingly popular.

    but in general, yeah there’s been talk of closing the subway but never from any elected official nor anyone who actually lives here (that I’m aware of). Even in a lockdown, it’s the lifeblood of a very dense city. You can’t do it.

    Manhattan is only 1.6 million residents but more than doubles during a normal workday. 5.5 million people rode the subway at peak ridership before this.

    Yeah. Looking around every Drive in has online tix sales. Dutchess has a few so for a little bit longer drive you can try them.

    Cuomo is allowing them to open but with less spots cars have to keep a space in between. I think they will do well.

    What are the profit margins. Its kinda crazy but atm it's going to be great for them. I doubt they don't sell out every weekend this summer.

    Anyone else not paying rent? Good friend hasn't paid April or May rents for his nice 1 bedroom $4K place in the W Village. He works at a big bank that is basically saying they won't go back until September at earliest. His lease isn't up until Oct but he's working from his family vacation home in the Midwest so why pay / go back?

    We negotiated a $1300 reduction in our rent the past 2 months from $5300 to $4K. Thinking about exiting permanently when our lease is up in July.

    Lots of people doing this stuff

    I am continuing to pay rent because I’m still in our apartment and it’s great

    city is going to be hurt badly by everyone leaving, especially manhattan

    We’re paying half our rent because 2/4 still have jobs and we let our landlord know. They have made zero effort to work with us and send an email every week asking when our rent will be paid in full. Bunch of assholes.

    yeah, the corporate landlords and large commercial real estate companies are replying with form letters and denying most peoples hardship or reduction requests. Even heartfelt personal requests. If we weren’t renting a condo from a nice couple that reduced our rent, we would have stopped paying too. And our lease ends in July so we are definitely skipping town for 3-6 months and working remotely from somewhere else
