Despite the governor’s and president’s advice for everyone to stay home whenever possible, I decided today to venture into Boston. Here are some shots of the nearly (but not completely) deserted city.

A few pedestrians were scattered along Boylston Street.
Customers had to wait in line before being allowed inside Trader Joe’s.
Not many shoppers were around on Newbury Street.
The lagoon was looking sad at Boston Public Garden.
Beacon Street was empty except for this bicyclist.
Another view of Beacon Street.
A deserted Canal Street.
No tourists at Quincy Market for these two musicians to play for.
One of the few Boston institutions operating as usual (albeit somewhat less crowded) – Haymarket!

Check out my photos of the celebration below:
