I filmed my socially distant bike ride through the ghost town of downtown Boston

Nice coverage of the old city. I noticed the Marriott Long Wharf, where the Biogen conference hotspot flared. Stay safe.

Might have been nice to actually see the empty streets and not just the tops of buildings?

I went out for a walk through Allston last night and it wasn’t nearly as deserted as I was expecting.


Go do it again, and do it right this time!



Freedom ride. Thanks for sharing.


My part of Cambridge isn’t completely deserted, but it is a pretty small percentage of normal traffic. Also, we’re close enough to the airport to normally hear a fair number of airplanes (and many helicopters), and it’s been pretty quiet.


This video gave me covid-19

I have to agree with the previous commenters. The view of the streets is not good, it’s hard to tell that they are empty. Worse yet, the high speed effect gave me a headache and a queasy feeling after just a few seconds.


Just back from a bike-and-hike. Zero airplane traffic when there should have been several overflights. I like it.

With your radio on Thom?
You must be some kind of Roadrunner. How did you get through Boston so fast?


Nice look at the skyline. I didnt see anyone

I liked the music too.

@thomdunn was that you?
I stopped buying music in 2008.

That was my band playing in the background, yeah
