With people around the world being forced to stay indoors to contain the spread of coronavirus, a Brooklyn photographer has showed that social distancing doesn’t necessarily mean putting one’s love life on hold.
When Jeremy Cohen saw a woman dancing on the roof of a building next to his place, he decided to try his luck. Using a drone, he sent a message to the woman and soon received a response. Taking to Twitter, he posted the video along with a caption that read, “I can’t believe this actually worked and yes this is a real story.”
