As a rule New Yorkers do things on a daily basis, just like pretty much everyone else in the world, but it's often assumed the things New Yorkers do are strange things, urbane things, utterly New Yorkerly things.
The thing I said about the New Yorkerly things they do is actually true, but that's because New Yorkers have access to things many others don't, like one dollar pizza slices that actually taste good.
On the flip side they also have to deal with everyday things others don't, like mysterious fluids falling from the sky.
New York Public Radio WNYC cast real New Yorkers for a series of 35 stock photos depicting everyday encounters and activities- NYC style, which are free to share and use for non-commercial purposes.
So the next time you need a pic of a guy making people uncomfortable on the subway with his “manspreading” you've got it! Thanks WNYC, we'll put them to good use.
