    18 Pictures That Show What NYC Looks Like Now That It's Become A Ghost Town

    The rumors are true.

    1. Well, I'm sad to report.

    Barclays line at 3:59pm, on this first day of early voting in my beloved ghost town of NYC (line wraps around into plaza) #EarlyVoting #nycvotes

    2. Yep, the rumors are true.

    “If you go and look at what has happened to New York, it’s a ghost town.” - @realDonaldTrump This is all one line. Of ghosts. #VoteEarlyDay

    3. NYC is dead.

    I’m in line to vote in the Heights and it’s wrapped around the block thrice. After months of being called a ghost town, NYC is ready to be heard. That said, our voting system is oppressive. Shoutout to everyone getting it done by any means necessary.

    4. A ghost town!

    I love my ghost town where the line to vote early has wrapped around like two and a half times around one block and then around the block south #Election2020 🗳

    5. Empty.

    First day of early voting in NYC. This line wraps a full city block twice!! Because of these awesome New Yorkers, we got to show our daughter how important it is to vote!! Thank you, @BOENYC and all the poll workers!! #pleasevote

    6. Deserted.

    For a ghost town there sure are a lot of people lining up for early voting today in New York City. #boo👻

    7. Truly unprecedented.

    I got your ghost town for ya’ right here, Mr. President. Day 2 early voting in NY. MSG is one of many packed early polling places, with lines around the block on both sides. Got in line 2 hours before polls opened. #earlyvoting #vote #vote2020 #noghosttown #iloveny #newyork #nyc

    8. Not a soul in sight.

    Trump: NYC is a ghost town New Yorkers, waiting 4+ hours on a line that wraps around the block twice to #VoteEarly:

    9. Nobody there.

    People along Broadway cheered Ruth, now wearing her “I VOTED EARLY IN THE CITY OF NEW YORK” sticker. You could hear the claps for up and down the blocks.

    10. *A quiet wind rumbles*

    Yeah, real “ghost town,” @realDonaldTrump. This line to vote against you in NYC wrapped around a giant block TWICE. And this is just the first day.

    11. *Tumbleweeds*

    Line snaked around four long blocks in downtown Brooklyn this am for day 1 of early voting. Let’s do this, NYC. #vote #wearamask

    12. Sad but true.

    13. Vacant!

    If NYC is a ghost town, then the ghosts are voting.

    14. Tenantless!

    Look at the voting line in the ghost town that is NYC, @realDonaldTrump When you leave the White House; be sure to turn off the lights on your way out.

    15. A totally different place.

    Early voting in the “ghost town” that is @ues @nyc line wrapped around 6 city blocks twice @BenKallos @KeithPowersNYC @nick_garber @AFineBlogger at jackie Robinson complex!

    16. Not much to see here.

    Hey, @realDonaldTrump, when it comes to early voting you out of office, NYC is definitely not a “ghost town,” but the popular vote count here should haunt you for the rest of your time on this earth. #VoteEarlyDay #VoteEarly #Vote

    17. Pack it up — everyone else has!

    The briskly moving line around the block to vote early at my local polling place in New York City. If this is a “ghost town,” it is shouting BOO

    18. See y'all in the suburbs or LA or something.

    @ConnieSchultz I thought I got an early start at 7:30 this morning to #vote in Brooklyn, but the line was doubled up and around three blocks! NYC is awake and voting, Connie!
