When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is say a short prayer of thanks. After that, I check my iPhone 5 and scroll over to the Facebook page of Humans of New York.
So much has been said about HONY and I’m just one of the millions of people who love it. Bottom line, I love HONY because it tells us that every one has a story to tell. It reminds me of this quote:
It’s fascinating to imagine how photographer Brandon Stanton gets those stories. Does he sit down with these New Yorkers for hours? Does he walk around all day in New York to look for interesting subjects?
Humans of New York has been turned into a book. For a hardbound book, $16.94 is very reasonable. I, however, prefer to read its Facebook page. Every day, Brandon posts a new story and that’s something a book can’t do (unless I wait for the second book).
Here are just some of my favorite HONY stories:
