Union Square Subway Therapy

Be kind to one another. Love Trumps Hate. It’s going to be ok. You are not alone. Love. Love. Love.

Almost 80% of people in Brooklyn voted for Clinton. In Manhattan and the Bronx it’s closer to 90%.

Given these numbers it’s understandably that the win by Donald Trump came as a big and profound shock for the majority of New Yorkers.

On Wednesday, an artist started handing out post it to reeling New Yorkers in the Union Square subway station. The mission: write down your feelings and heal. Subway Therapy.

“Subway Therapy is about making people smile, laugh, and feel less stress,” the creator of the project, Matthew “Levee” Chavez, wrote on his website.

By now, the post-it wall spans several tunnels and is a beautiful and powerful statement of New Yorkers coming together. Take a look.

Creative Protest: A Hut Shaped Like Trump’s Hair

IMG_5393

Wandering around New York City, you are prone to stumble across a Donald Trump protest these days. There is the Donald dino who lets you beat him, there are homeless men asking for $1 or they will vote Trump – and now there is the Trump Hut.

I saw the “luxury protesting hut in the shape of Donald Trump’s hair” outside the Trump Hotel on Columbus Circle, a favorite spot for protestors.

The hut was made by a Mexican artist and consists of 96 hula skirts  – which most closely resembles the texture of the GOP nominee’s hair. Despite looking like Donald Trump, the hut is actually quiet comfortable and can house up to two people.

Positioned just outside the over the top Trump Hotel, the hut was meant to show income disparity. Another interpretation is the dystopian future all of us will be living in, if Trump becomes president.

If you are interested in supporting this prime real estate project, the group behind it has started a Kickstarter campaign, where you can buy shares.

It might not protect you if Donald Trump becomes commander in chief, but it sure as hell looks like a nuclear fallout shelter.
