Usually, New Yorkers clap, tap with spoons or tambourines, or simply shout “thank you” from their window in the evening at 7 pm, faithful to their ritual of tribute to caregivers mobilized in the face of the pandemic, which has conquered the United States after several European countries. But the ritual has its variations. Thursday April 16, the volunteer Peace of the Heart choir called to sing New York, New York, Frank Sinatra’s homage to this supposedly never-sleeping metropolis, a symbol of urban turmoil silenced for a month. This great classic echoed in certain neighborhoods for ten minutes, coming from numerous windows and balconies – thousands across the city, according to the number of people who had indicated on the event’s Facebook page wanting to participate.
