Woven In Among Us: Corona Edition

During a global pandemic, not everyone is able to take a break. While Decipher City is a predominantly online project, it would be remiss not to point out how the working class has been placed on the frontlines. Therefore, on the day of what would have been the second tour of “Woven In Among Us: A Chicano Patchwork,” each stop will be briefly reviewed with an eye on how the working class has been afflicted by choices beyond their control. For newcomers, the original route can be accessed here.

Starting at the MACC

For those who are concerned about being out and about during the pandemic, officials in New York and Toronto have recommended cycling and walking as the safest methods of transportation, especially for those without access to personal vehicles. In the city of New York, as well as Minneapolis, certain areas will be restricted to only pedestrians and cyclists.
