The Covid-19 health crisis is still far from over, at least if we’re taking a clue from what the authorities are telling us. However, the biggest problem with the 2020 “pandemic” is not the virus itself, but the economic disaster that’s left in its trail, and, if you’re living the United States, the lack of reaction from the same “authorities” to the BLM/Antifa riots.
Today we discovered a shocking video recently recorded by an unknown “hero” depicting a post apocalyptic Manhattan , a drive tour of sorts that shows stores all boarded up and ghost town streets in one of the world’s largest cities.
New York’s famous shopping area is now looking pretty much like a post Soviet demilitarized zone. This is the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic that killed “main street” businesses, combined with the state allowing BLM and Antifa to riot without repercussions.
The video is taken from a vehicle strolling down Fifth Avenue, and practically all of the high end stores that were the pride of NY are now boarded up.
It’s curios that you don’t see things like that on legacy media:
Don't know who recorded it but I downloaded this yesterday

The narrator says exasperated:
“Look at everything. Everything’s boarded up. Even the hotel. Boarded up. This is all Manhattan, boarded up. Have you ever seen Manhattan look like this? The media will not report this. Everything boarded up. They don’t want to show this to you people because they’re afraid. Saks 5th Avenue – boarded up from end to end. They put up barbed wire. Everywhere you see boards, windows are gone. Look at New York City – what happened,”
As per a Fox News affiliate:
According to the most recent data from United Van Lines, between May and July, there was a 95 percent year over year increase in interest in moving out of Manhattan. That compares with a 19 percent increase in moving interest in the U.S., overall.
The top destinations for people who moved out of New York City between March and August were Florida and California – which together comprised 28 percent of relocations. Texas and North Carolina made up 16 percent of moves.
Things are pretty much the same in Los Angeles and Chicago, and you can watch Joe Rogan’s show from last week when he tells Tim Dillon that he drove personally down Melrose and “admired” the new homeless camps, needles everywhere across the street from five million dollar houses, and the boarded up/burned up buildings.
It’s interesting you can’t find an August 2020 video of downtown LA on the internet right now, but according to the Daily Mail, Los Angeles is “a city on the brink :
Today, Los Angeles is a city on the brink. ‘For Sale’ signs are seemingly dotted on every suburban street as the middle classes, particularly those with families, flee for the safer suburbs, with many choosing to leave LA altogether.
British-born Danny O’Brien runs Watford Moving & Storage. ‘There is a mass exodus from Hollywood,’ he says.
California is currently harboring almost half of the US homeless population, and most of them are addicted to drugs; needless to say that this situation has created a nightmarish environment for the city dwellers:
Junkies and the homeless, many of whom are clearly mentally ill, walk the palm-lined streets like zombies – all just three blocks from multi-million-dollar homes overlooking the Pacific.
Stolen bicycles are piled high on pavements littered with broken syringes.
The latest move of California’s state legislature which looks to impose a new tax on the wealthy doesn’t help with the exodus:
Fast forward to today when the ultra-liberal state of California is now ready to take this “socialist” idea from concept to the implementation phase, with the SF Chronicle reporting that a group of CA state lawmakers on Thursday proposed a first-in-the-nation state wealth tax that would hit about 30,400 California residents and raise an estimated $7.5 billion for the general fund.
The proposed tax rate would be 0.4% of net worth (most likely ended up far higher), excluding directly held real estate, that exceeds $30 million for single and joint filers and $15 million for married filing separately.
