Last year we gave out thousands of nametags and the feeling of camaraderie was everywhere.
We handed out free name tags at these spots from noon to 5pm:

  • East Village - Tompkins Square Park at St. Marks Place and Avenue A
  • Williamsburg - Bedford Avenue between North 7th St and North 6th St

I didn't sign up. Can I still get involved?

Sure! If you'd like to hand out name tags with us, just come by!

Let's document this day!

Send us your photos and videos from Instagram with #NametagDay, and we'll feature them on our site.

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.

"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
