It’s a minor detail in COVID-19’s grand scheme of suffering, but I’ll miss the “stoop scoop.” If you live in a place like a Brooklyn, you probably own a few things that came from someone else’s stoop: a book, vase, pair of serving spoons, or CD in a box labeled “free.” It’s amazing, people are so challenged for space in NYC apartments, they would rather give stuff away just to free up a little space than go through the trouble of having a stoop sale or trying to sell online.

Well, that’s another piece of the city that’s gone now…
