I Can Never See Tomorrow

Found by Lenie in NYC, NY

A tenant moved out & left their whole life behind, from baby books to artworks, love letters to random musings. Drawers had old lottery tickets & clippings of hair, film reels & broken earrings-the detritus of a life. So, as Rod Serling would have said, “Submitted for your approval, one envelope with handwriting…random lovelorn musings or something else entirely.”

With Sincere Appreciation

FOUND by Jan Mundo at the corner of 79th Street and York Avenue, New York City, New York

This letter of appreciation was taped to a streetlight pole on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Because greeting cards and hand-written notes aren’t commonly seen posted in the city (they’re taken down by law), it caught my attention. I read the note, which seemed as if it had been written by an elderly person, then went on my way. After half a block, I turned around after half a block to go back and snap a pic. The writer’s public expression of thanks moved me. (The offending manhole cover, which is set a few inches lower than street level) has still not been fixed — in case that part is difficult to read.)
