Video: Princeton residents make some noise for healthcare workers

Residents in neighborhoods across the Princeton area are showing their gratitude for healthcare workers by gathering on porches and streets at 7 p.m. to making some noise as a way to say thank you.

The ritual is similar to efforts in other towns and cities across the country and the world. In New York City, residents have been going to their apartment balconies at 7 p.m. each night to clap and cheer, as hospital workers change shifts, a trend that has been named #ClapBecauseWeCare.

Princeton resident Kate Warren wrote a letter to the editor this week calling on her neighbors to make some noise in solidarity with healthcare workers each night at 7 p.m.

The Mercer Street neighborhood has been cheering for healthcare workers every night at 7 p.m., even in the rain. On Thursday night, resident Greg Ammon captured the above video, which was filmed with the help of residents Lisa and Michael Serieyssol.
