New Yorkers Wade Through Literal Cesspools to Catch the Train

Leaving the house ten years ago: Keys. Wallet. Phone.
Leaving the house in 2021: Keys. Wallet. Phone. Face mask. Hand sanitizer. Life vest. Canoe. Tetanus shot.

As Hurricane Elsa puts NYC's crumbling infrastructure to the test, New Yorkers are wading through toxic subterranean pools and flooded boroughs to get to point B. In a number of viral videos captured by people at the 157th Street subway station last night, commuters are seen attempting to protect themselves from the filthy water using trash bags, without much success. Above ground wasn't much prettier for those trying to get through actual rivers of traffic. Many turned to Twitter to express concern and criticism toward MTA and the city. New Yorkers haven't forgotten Hurricane Sandy and they certainly don't want to experience the sequel.

42 Memes Perfect For Frivolous Scrolling

It's said that all workand no play make Jack a dull boy. And while we don't know who Jack is, we don't think he wants to be dull. We think he wants to be a well-rounded individual, a man who understands the importance of a work-life balance. Being a workaholic is known to breed misery, and, eventually, burnout. So Jack really ought to be mixing things up. Maybe he should take a break to stop and smell the roses. Or, perhaps, he's more of a binge-watcher or book-reader. But if we were this Jack character, we'd consider taking a secret daily sabbatical solely to scroll through memes. The instant gratification of these dumb jokes is just the kind of respite we need to stay sane. And we're willing to bet that Jack would like them, too.

New York City is definitely 'weird living situations' capital of the world, but this is next level. TikTokker @samanthartsoe felt a perplexing draft coming from her bathroom mirror and decided to investigate while documenting the exploration in a series of TikTok videos. What she found was pretty insane—a huge hold in the wall that her mirror had been concealing for who knows how long. And behind the wall? An entire apartment. At the end of the video, @samanthartsoe says she'll be giving her landlord a call and hopefully she'll update us in another TikTok video, because we'd really like to hear their explanation for this one.

Vornado's 'Penn15' Tower Brings Out Twitter's Inner 12 Year Old

Good news for immature people: A new iteration of New York City's Hotel Pennsylvania redevelopment has once again brought attention to the skyscraper's exceedingly ridiculous name. the proposed skyscraper's name, Penn15, was announced this time last year.  But the moniker, which hearkens back to middle school penis humor, is just now receiving a lot of mischievous attention after an incredulous tweet from Noah Hurowitz went viral. 

Most of the social media response comes from people who were definitely in the "Pen15 club." And they can't believe that Vornado Realty Trust's marketing team - or the architects - would be so daft to name the phallic tower after, well, a phallus. For all we know this is all an elaborate marketing scheme to draw attention the the behemoth. But we're still enjoying the laughs.

Chilling Twitter Thread Describes The Dire Situation At NYC Hospitals

Despite the fact that COVID-19 has been around since November, many countries (and people) are still figuring out how to grapple with the outbreak as it worsens in countries like Italy and the United States. Unfortunately, hospitals stateside are already reeling from Coronavirus cases. Author Evan Siegfried took to Twitter last night with a chilling update from one of his friends who works at a New York City hospital. The nurse describes an alarming situation that's a combination of under-staffing, lack of supplies, and a serious need for blood. We sincerely hope that people stop hoarding medical supplies so that the professionals can take care of the people who really need help.

School Bus Driver Violently Throws 'Kid' Off Of Bus, Shocks Ignorant Passersby

Well, here's a story with an M. Night Shyamalan twist for you! Twitter user @BonLouBoutinshared a video earlier today featuring a bus driver seemingly throwing a student off of his yellow school bus. We're relieved to report he was doing his civic duty and actually protecting the children trying to get to or from school. The small person he ejected from the vehicle was in fact a grown man, much to the shock of the people who had just been admonishing the driver. While the video is kind of amusing, it's also immensely disturbing that a creep could get away with this. We tip our hat to this gallant bus driver for doing what had to be done.

Crazy video of school bus driver throwing kid off of bus, turns out it is a midget / little person, a grown man.

Popular Youtuber Etika Found Dead In New York City

The NYPD's search for 29 year old Desmond 'Etika' Amofah has come to a tragic end. The New York Police Department confirmed earlier today that a body found in the East River was that of the allegedly troubled Youtuber. The police began searching for the popular live-streamer on June 20th following Amofah's disappearance, and before that, the uploading of a chilling video in which he revealed his suicidal thoughts. Many fans were hopeful that this was a moment of  being "overdramatic," similar to a stunt he had pulled in 2018.Things began taking a less hopeful turn when his belongings were recovered, scattered around the Manhattan Bridge. 

Following news of Etika's demise, many peers and fans took to Twitter and Youtube to share their shock, stories of happier times, and to implore people to pay attention to mental health.

 If you are struggling with mental illness or suicidal thoughts, remember that help is available. Talk to someone.

Cringey Thread About An NYC Commuter Is A Public Transit Nightmare

New York City's subway system is notoriously horrible. The MTA offers a melange of inconvenient construction, public defecation, constant delays, and even controversial line closures. Commuters battle with rats, garbage, dancing youths and sometimes even violent passengers. Unfortunately, not every subway saga is as adorable as pizza rat. Vice writer Sara David has opened our eyes to a whole new world of public transportation psychosis. A ludicrous tale involving rush hour and hard-boiled eggs. Brace yourselves - this tale ain't pretty.

Funny subway saga, hard boiled eggs, sara davis.
