There will be no New Year’s celebration in New York City for the first time in 114 years, all because of the ongoing hysteria over the coronavirus.
On Wednesday, Tim Tompkins, the president of the Times Square Alliance, told the Big Apple that New Year’s is cancelled because of COVID.
“One thing that will never change is the ticking of time and the arrival of a New Year at midnight on December 31st,” the timid Tompkins said in a press release.
“But this year there will be significantly new and enhanced virtual, visual and digital offerings to complement whatever limited live entertainment or experiences – still in development — will take place in Times Square.”
Let’s get this straight, America… no “virtual” anything is real. You aren’t “attending,” or “visiting” anything you are seeing on the Internet. So, no, you aren’t “going” to a “virtual Prom,” or graduation ceremony, and you are not “attending” a “virtual concert.” And, no “virtual ball drop” is a ball drop. Videos are not life, people.
“There will be some socially distanced activities in Times square but it’s going to be primarily for a broadcast and streaming audience,” Tompkins said.
“There will be a very finite number of people in Times Square to sort of make that happen for the broadcast purposes but there’s not going to be crowds of the general public.”
“It’s yet to be decided what live events will take place. The news release states there will be “an extremely limited group of in-person honorees, socially distanced, who will reflect the themes, challenges and inspirations of 2020.”
What a bunch of cowards.
