A rage-induced Instagram account through which I document people behaving selfishly in mass transit (specifically New York City, for now, since that's my location). This started because I'm frustrated by how bad subway and bus etiquette has gotten lately. Eventually this page will feature such platinum selling hits as: "Guy sitting on the train with a bluetooth boombox blaring" and "Lady sitting on the subway steps during rush hour." For clarification - it only counts when the doors are open. If you know how to play the "this door won't open for 7 stops" game then good on you. Submissions accepted at email@example.com

For one fleeting moment in the summer of 1989, college radio, MTV, classic rock, and the avant-garde intersected when The Ordinaires, a nine-piece orchestral art-rock band from New York City, summoned the ghosts of ‘70s stadium-rock bombast with an infamous cover tune. And after a decade surviving near-death experiences and religious condemnation, the band was about to face its most formidable obstacle: itself. This is the story of a time and a place never to be repeated, in which an unlikely group of people made a most unusual noise. These are Nine Views of the Ordinaires. (59m) [more inside]
People in New York love the subway way more than the bus. Sure, it's okay, the bus is confusing, but what if they knew all the secret places the bus could take them faster than the subway? And there was a reaaaally nice interactive map to go along with it? [more inside]
There are a million fun things to do in New York, but for some reason we never end up doing any of them! So I figured hey, let's help people get together to go get dim sum, or visit museums, or hike some trails, or whatever. Welcome to Adventure Club! [more inside]
We take historical photographs of New York City and add contemporary captions. We think they're funny.
