With the majority of Jersey City residents staying home, typically packed urban areas have taken on a ghost town vibe.

A new drone video by Mingomatic, captures this in Jersey City’s Journal Square neighborhood. The normally busy transportation hub is virtually deserted during what would be a morning rush hour.

One striking shot shows the JSQ Path Plaza void of any humans and a darkened, shuttered Starbucks.

Other aerial views show the desolate intersection of JFK Boulevard and Bergen Avenue.

Watch the whole video here:

The team behind this video also has a collection of others including an empty NYC one. See them all here.
