PHOTOS: LUNGS Harvest Arts Festival shows how New York City is thriving creatively during the pandemic

Part of LUNGS Harvest Arts Festival —the band Source at La Plaza Cultural with a socially distanced audience. Everyone happy to be out after months of confinement.


Rumors that New York is dead are highly exaggerated.

Downtown, arts and music and spoken word continue the vitality of the city even amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The recent LUNGS Harvest Arts Festival on the Lower East Side, video shoots, book launches, music outside of restaurants or in the park prove that New York City is not dead.
