I hope you find solidarity knowing you are like so many others. You’re a special kind of person, the kind who decided to choose what their destiny would be, not have it laid out for them. Their New York might be in Los Angeles. Or Nashville. Or a sustainable farm in South America. That isn’t the point. The point is you didn’t commit to change because this city would make you the woman you wanted to be. You knew the woman you were. You know the woman you demanded yourself to become, and she belonged in New York.

Poetry on the Streets


“Surrounding the construction site for Shake Shack in Downtown Brooklyn (409 Fulton Street), artist / TED fellow Candy Chang has created the public participation installation “Before I Die.” Locals have been writing up their bucket lists on the giant chalkboard.”


Writings include:

Before I die I want to …
See my mom happy.
Pay my student loan.
Find balance.
Marry Andrea.
Be a millionaire.

Has anyone checked out this gorgeous street project yet?
