POSTCARDS FROM NYC
Handmade postcards from some of our favorite NYC creatives from their favorite places, mailed to our favorite city.
Dear New York,
Did you know our affair is my favorite affair of all? Maybe it’s because of you that I’m so encouraged, and independent — strong enough to share you with 8.4 million people and never doubt a thing.
You smell bad in the summer, but you’re pretty at nighttime, especially when you show off those bridges and skylines. With endless surprises, you fill our eyes and bellies. Yes, you often reward absurdness to the point of absurdity, but then what fun would it be any other way? We might sing with you tomorrow and then cry outside the train on yesterday, but love you...we just simply cannot not love you.
Thanks for hosting such a mind-blowing community of modern makers, unafraid to take the very best nostalgia from your streets and turn it into their own endeavors. So, we wanted to send you a few post cards, from a few local talents, from their favorite spots — because they understand your charm in the most creative and interesting ways possible. Their taste? Paramount.
