More about New York Writes Itself.com:
NewYorkWritesItself.com is a destination for New Yorkers to write down the funny, weird, romantic, bizarre or just plain crazy things they experience everyday on the streets of New York. These stories form a constantly growing script of real stories. Last winter, we curated NEW YORK TYPES, a letterpress exhibition that showcased the real words, sentences, and conversations of New Yorkers in unique letterpress styles designed by some of city’s best type artists. The show had a record attendance at the Art Directors Club in New York.
Earlier this summer we also premiered THE CHAIRMAN, a monthly web series featuring veteran New York actor Kevin Conway. Every month The Chairman selected his favorite Script entries and retold them from his iconic yellow chair from across the five boroughs. Stay tuned for updates from New York Writes Itself, because like the city itself, more is always in development.
