These are dark times we are living in but every dark cloud has a silver lining. The goodness and unity these trying times are bringing out in the world is our silver lining. The Four Seasons on 57th Street in New York City is setting one such example of kindness. It is offering free shelter to medical workers fighting the virus. They are setting an example to be of little help to the brave doctors, nurses, and medical personnel working on the front lines of the pandemic. These medical professionals are putting in more than 12 hours in a day of work; add to that the few hours of traveling which only makes things difficult for them but certainly doesn’t stop them. Ty Warner, the chairman of the hotel’s corporate owner said, “Many of those working in New York City have to travel long distances to and from their homes after putting in 18-hour days. They need a place close to work where they can rest and regenerate,” the Four Seasons hotel is also very ideally located between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue giving it close proximity to a number of the city’s hospitals like NYU Langone, Bellevue, Weill Cornell Medical Center, and Mount Sinai.
News states there are as many as 37,258 confirmed cases in the state and more than 21,393 in New York City itself. Let’s hope Four Seasons Hotel, New York influences many to follow suit and offer free lodging to those who are risking their lives to fight the virus.
