New Yorkers are coming together amid the coronavirus pandemic. On Thursday night, people across New York City participated in the "Clap Because We Care" ritual, which has become a daily way for residents to thank healthcare workers for their help on the frontlines of the pandemic, and added a little something extra.

Following the booming applause from apartments across the city, New Yorkers joined together to sing Frank Sinatra's iconic 1980 track, "New York, New York."

"If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere, It's up to you, New York, New York," residents belted from their windows and roof tops.

New Yorkers took to social media to share videos of the experience, dubbed New York Sings Along, which was started by The Peace of Heart Choir.

More than 8,000 people who couldn't join in in person flocked to the event's Facebook page to participate virtually.
