gifts for new york

Thank You to Familiar Strangers

This week was thank you notes to familiar strangers who brighten up life in New York --

the especially-helpful train conductor

the newspaper salesman with a smile for everyone

the exuberant Time Out New York newspaper distributor

the warm duo in the food truck

the gym attendant who makes us all feel like a million bucks. 

These constant figures are like little rest stops for the soul in the daily marathon of New York life.  A big thanks to them for their energy and brightness, they sure are important pieces in The Big Ample puzzle.
