The old lady… Kate McKinnon[Starts with clips of New York city]
Ego: Thank you, New York.
Heidi: New York.
Chris: New York.
Ego: Things got pretty tough this summer.
Heidi: But through it all, we stayed strong.
Chris: We stayed together.
Ego: And we never lost who we are.
Heidi: Because we are New York.
Chris: New York.
Ego: New York.
Heidi: And no matter how hard things get…
Chris: We always get through it.[A woman starts appearing in all clips dancing at the background]
Ego: And we do it our way.
Heidi: Each and every one of us played a part.
Chris: From the nurses who who kept the safe.
Ego: To the essential workers who kept food on our table.
Heidi: To all the neighbors who pitched in.
Chris: And today, some things are different.
Ego: But most things are exactly the same.
Ego: One of a kind
Chris: So, hey, if you’re not from here, come see for yourself.
Ego: The museums, the landmarks–
Heidi: And this lady. [The lady who was dancing is now laying in the park topless.] Sort of a dancing old woman.
Chris: Not homeless. Just, you know, quirky. She has an apartment. She’s just usually outside.
Ego: Like a rent controlled situation. She lives in a 40-floor-walk up. So, when she’s out, she’s out.
Heidi: She has lived in a studio since she was 16 which was 30 or 100 years ago.
Chris: She’s not not a professor at Columbia.
Ego: And until broadway reopens, she’s performing her one woman version of ‘The Lion King’ at the park everyday.
Heidi: New York is not a ghost town.
Chris: It’s his town. It’s her town.
Ego: And it’s definitely her town. [referring to the old lady]
Heidi: So, today, we want to say thank you.
Ego: Thank you.
Chris: Because New York will always be New York.
Heidi: And we’re so proud to say…
Ego: The people just crazy enough to call this place home will always be here.
The old lady: I love New York!
