I am a people watcher, and I am not ashamed. Especially when riding the Subway from place to place, I can’t help but observe what others are doing. A friend of mine who moved to the city about a year ago showed me this website, and I think it’s a great example of how this city works. The website is called the “Underground New York Public Library.” Basically, photographer Ourit Ben-Haim goes around and takes pictures of what different people are reading on the Subway. It’s a fun project, and he updates it multiple times a day.
Here’s the site: http://undergroundnewyorkpubliclibrary.com/
It’s also a good reminder that yes, people DO still read! What a relief.
