I have been living in NYC for 23 years (my entire adult life). I love it dearly. I work for a large fashion brand, my wife is a yoga instructor. We have a 9 year old son. His entire life we have lived in a 2 bedroom Manhattan apartment and it was always enough. Once I began working from home, she began remote teaching and they closed his school, we lasted a week in our apartment before we knew we had to leave. We have been living at my aunt's beach house since March 22nd. We kept our apartment until the beginning of June when it became apparent that this was really the "new normal". We have received no indication on what NYC public schools plan to do in September. It doesn't seem plausible that he will be going back to full time schooling. I applaud the attempts at "remote learning", but it has honestly been a joke. How will they deal with the fact that there are 32 kids in his crammed classroom? The city has no money to fix this issue and the federal government has not even given a thought to public education. Imagine if they magically found 50 billion for public school kids like they did for the airline industry. Our hope is that in a small town he will have a better chance to attend school more regularly. Both my wife and I will be working remotely for the foreseeable future. We won't need to commute, which we had always dreaded about moving out of the city. Our plan is to rent a house at the beach for the next year or so and see how that goes. I feel that there will be plenty of available apartments if we decide to move back.
