A nearly empty Neches Street in downtown Austin during the coronavirus pandemic in April 2020.

In March 2020, the coronavirus began to change our city: the sounds, the music and the people within it. KUT and KUTX asked Austinites to write love letters to their empty city. These letters document memories, calls to action, and quarantine experiences from across the city.
