No Joy in Harrison
On a recent photo excursion, I took some shots at an eerily empty professional soccer stadium, the Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey, home to the New York Red Bulls soccer club. Empty, quiet, not a soul around. Ticket booths shuttered as no fans can attend any games during the pandemic. What a strange outcome of Corona—sports without live spectators. To borrow from baseball, can there still be joy in Mudville?
