After closing for more than a year due to the epidemic, the office of marriages on the island of Manhattan in New York has reopened its doors to those wishing to marry. “We wanted a very simple and private ceremony,” says Cy Fuertado, a 32-year-old New York photographer who has just married her partner, Richard Casey. And we wanted to get married before the outbreak of Covid-19.” The office of marriages has been closed since March 2020, and it did not reopen its doors until Friday. It had previously closed its doors “after the September 11 attacks and after Hurricane Sandy” in 2012.
The municipality had launched a marriage service through the “Zoom” application during the closure period.
