Interviews and photos by Cynthia Romero

Anna Arons,
works at The Innocence Project
“I have a new appreciation for being at work, because it’s so fresh there. I don’t have any air conditioning at home, so I am a little happier at work now.”
“I live in Williamsburg and everyone over there sort of just opens up checkpoints, and you can just go walk eight blocks and every two blocks somebody’s got a fire hydrant blowing all over the street.”
“I am a personal trainer and I have to come outside. But that makes me more focused because I’m not just chilling at the park wasting time; I go straight to my point, to my destination, do my thing and then home when I can.”
