New York subway signs experiment


"In New York City, subway conductors have to point at a black and white sign. At every hour of the day. At every stop. They do this to show that they've fully arrived on the platform. We decided to show our appreciation for their work." —Yosef Lerner.

This video is amazing!

That's so sweet! One day when the window washers were cleaning at our high-rise office building, I got everyone to make signs that said stuff like, "Window Washers are dead sexy!" and "You rock!" and "I can see cleaaarly now, the dirt is gooone." We got the other floors involved, so they had signs on 4 floors. It was awesome.

My coworker sent this to me earlier. Makes me miss New York... and New Yorkers! I wouldn't mind if the subways were smoother and quieter than those in Paris though :)

I love this! It makes me want to live in NYC, too.

marlene said...

that IS amazing. often we get lost in the idea that a place like nyc is big and anonymous and full of people engrossed in their own lives -- it's lovely to see something that reinforces the idea of community. thanks

This is really sweet. I appreciate the MTA so much; I rely on them everyday, and it definitely isn't a job I want. I can't thank them enough.

i am here to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted traditional spell hospital for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 1 week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still live me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that he traditional spell hospital casted on him that make him comeback to me today,me and my family are now happy again today. thank you traditional spell hospital for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact traditionalspellhospital@gmail.com. and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
