They say to whistle while you work but in one man’s case, it’s all about hitting the high notes. Meet the most in-tune garbage collector in New York City. As he goes about his nightly route, this man belts out some crazy good tunes. In particular, Hoobastank’s ‘Same Direction’ and ‘Out Of Control’.
Can scaffolding be beautiful? Anderson Moran has undertaken a photo series for the architecture and design firm, William Green Architecture, that shines a light on the ever-changing scaffolding in New York City.
Hooray! This shows that New Yorkers do have hearts. While riding the subway with a basket full of coloured roses, one man stopped a woman and asked how much they were. She simply told him it was a dollar for a single rose or $11 for a dozen.
The beauty of using Uber is the convenience of it all. Need a car to come get you? A few clicks and you’re done. But what happens when you’re stuck in Manhattan traffic and you’ve got to make it to the airport in a short period of time? No Uber car could ever get you there fast enough. That’s why you’ll have to go with Gotham Air.
It’s 2am and your neighbour upstairs is making a racket, but not just any old racket. This type of racket sounds unlike anything you’ve heard before. Could that be… bowling balls being… rolled across the floor?
While you’re waiting for the bus, by all means read a book. Chat to a friend on your phone. Eat the contents of your grocery bags if you like. But please, don’t get out your guitar and start shredding. Especially when your bus stop is in front of a funeral home.
When it was announced that an historic snow storm was due to hit New York City this past week, New Yorkers did what any other population would do-they went straight to Craigslist to find a mate. At the time of writing, New York’s Craigslist has hundreds of posts online from men and women, all looking for that special someone to bunker down with while the blizzard passes through.
For those who are unlucky enough to have ridden the New York City subway, you’ll probably remember a few things about your ride. First, there was probably some woman applying mascara in your car. Second, there was probably an obnoxious dance-off taking place along the journey. And lastly, there were probably more seats taken up by bags of groceries than actual people. New Yorkers aren’t rude, they’re just… different.
Walking around any city you’re bound to see a bunch of flyers attached to light posts about lost dogs, lost keys, discounted guitar lessons, or houses for rent. One guy in New York City has decided to put up his own flyers in an attempt to make jaded New Yorkers laugh, and he’s doing a […]
There’s just something about New York City that makes you go to therapy. Ok, not everyone, but a large number of New Yorkers see a psychiatrist and their offices range in size and design, from opulent library-type rooms to tiny spaces in a basement apartment. Psychiatrist Sebastian Zimmerman was intrigued by the different offices therapy takes place in New York City, so he decided to photograph them, leading to his book, Fifty Shrinks.
Water tanks in NYC given an artistic treatment to raise awareness about the importance of clean water for all
For most of us, clean, drinkable water is something so natural, and almost boring, that we take it for granted. But for many many people it’s not. Filmmaker Mary Jordan had her own painful experience while she was in Ethiopia in 2007 working on a documentary. She almost died from the contaminated water and promised the women who nursed her back to health, that she will help.
In New York, restaurants are required by law to post instructions on the wall on how to save someone from choking. These posters designed by Steve Duenes, while clear to understand, sometimes get just a little too boring for some eateries.
Animal lovers in New York can now rejoice and might even look forward to their deaths if they are so inclined because it won’t be a till-death-do-us-part situation for them and their beloved pets anymore.
