Sorting Cargo In A Gutter Near You

Amazon Sorting

     Near our home in Queens, New York on Radnor Road in a park setting where children attend classes at PS 178 The Holliswood School, the action during the weekdays in early mornings recently are a half dozen ordinary station wagon vehicles gathered amidst hundreds of Amazon packages strewn all over the pavement, sidewalk and even in the gutter.
     In these days of COVID, we can only wonder what those Amazon envelopes and packages pick up lying in the street. Also ponder the fate of all those empty shops on Main Street, nearby Union Turnpike where once there was a book store, a children’s clothing store, a movie house, all operated by people who celebrated pride of place in our town and now are a memory of a once upon a time world.
     Now as reported here, Amazon is taking over Newark Airport Cargo’s main handling terminals leaving more than 20 air cargo carrying airlines out on the street.
     Is this the new face of cargo? Who will we see sorting air commerce outside of our kindergarten window next?
