Since the amount of people using and riding the famous London tube has condensed due to the new regulations and restrictions of the pandemic, the amount of electricity being used and consumed has also reduced. To give you a more realistic perspective, there are almost 300 train stations on the tube, and London’s Government official website stated that 2 million people utilize the tube on a daily basis! Talk about another win for Mother Earth.

There’s no denying the Big Apple has been under strict regulations these days, and these pictures of Rockefeller Plaza are here to prove it. There very well might be millions of people living in Manhattan, but for now, the streets have been significantly less hectic than what you might be used to seeing on TV and movies.

Rockefeller Center is notably known to be open 24-hours a day, but they’ve put into place a complete shut-down to keep citizens safe and secure from any spread of the virus.
