We Will Be Close: Downtown Highland Park NJ On Covid-19 Lockdown

By Mason Resnick

Signs of the times—I took a walk down Highland Park’s main drag, Raritan Avenue, this morning and conducted a visual study of the various “closed due to Covid-19” signs.

I hope one day soon we will look back on these historic times and say “thank goodness that’s over”!

Stay safe.
