Coronavirus is still spreading around the globe, the United States has found its epicenter for the deadly illness.

New York City, is one of the densest cities, has thousands of positive cases and many dozen deaths at the time of writing. Both figures are sure to keep climbing, especially as the state ramps up testing. As such, new stay-at-home rules going into effect on Sunday night will further quiet the city that never sleeps.

All nonessential businesses will close and people are urged to stay home unless it is completely needed to go outside. It’s not quite as strict as what’s happening in Italy, but the impacts are similar: Iconic, typically crowded NYC locales are now eerily empty.

Take a look for yourself.

Even if you've never stepped foot in NYC, you know Times Square is supposed to be more bustling than this.
