Downtown Ghost Town

Visiting downtown Paterson at any given time of the week one would, hear loud sounds of trucks unloading supplies, see vendors on the street peddling counterfeit colognes, and hear chatterboxes hollering back and forth as taxis and aggressive drivers tooter at each other.

Today, walking through the same streets, the horns were silent, the hollering absent, street vendors not in sight, and almost no trucks unloading inventory. Very few people were treading the sidewalks.

A disturbing silence was in the air.
