Thank You, New Yorkers

FOUND by Jan Mundo
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.

It’s an iPhone pic–I couldn’t very well take it down, now, could I?

Boulders

 

FOUND by Dave K; Rochester, NY
This was one of those random, “what’s that?” moments. I just thought I was picking up a piece of trash to toss in the handy grey plastic municipal garbage bin on the corner. Then I read it. Point #3, and why it would be one of someone’s personal boulders, pretty much convinced me that I had to keep it. By the time I got to point #9 I just wanted to meet the person that wrote the note. Apparently she/he works with customers, seeing as one of them needs help with… well, something. I can’t read the last word written in pink and I kinda like the mystery.
