As many businesses and popular attractions close, normally busy cities are turning into ghost towns and high-traffic areas are now dead streets.

Downtown Houston is also popular for nightlife and entertainment, but visitors aren’t attracted to the area due to restaurant and bar closures taking place to help mitigate social distancing.

Near the Galleria, streets that are normally backed up are empty.
