A Drone Captured Eerie But Inspiring Footage Of A Very Empty Jersey City During The Pandemic In New Jersey

There’s a lot of bad news out there lately. If you’ve been following the news in New Jersey, you’re already well aware, so I’m not going to rehash any of the negativity. Today, I’m sharing some good news with you. New Jersey is one of five states to score an “A” in social distancing. Find before and after photos (and a video) below.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

While there are some people out and about (many New Jerseyans still have to go to work, get groceries, and pick up takeout), the streets are pretty empty and many businesses are shuttered. This is sad but also inspiring. Staying home saves lives, so stay home for now. When this is all over, let’s show our local businesses lots of love! If you can’t afford to spend, share – spread the word. Speaking of sharing, you can share a favorite local business with us by filling out this short nomination form.
