Meet your fellow New Yorkers
Ever wanted to connect with the millions of New Yorkers walking past you? Each day brings opportunities to make new friends and share experiences. All too often, we can forget to notice the people around us. Nametag Day aims to break this barrier and strengthen the human element of the New York experience, adding a bit of spontaneity and silliness to people's day.
Help document the day!
Tweet us your photos and videos from YouTube and Instagram, and we'll feature them on our site.
And let's make a documentary together. Film a story or three about the day, being as creative as you like. We'll provide a dropbox to send the footage and then we can crowd-edit it into a citywide interactive documentary.
"We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects." - Herman Melville
