Expectations And Reality Of Moving To New York City

New York, New York. It’s one of the world’s most famous cities in the world. There’s good reason NYC has been featured in countless movies and TV shows. 

No wonder most people visiting or moving to the city have unrealistic expectations of how life really is the Big Apple. Darn you Hollywood!

BuzzFeed covers just a few of the expectations and realities of moving to New York in this new humorous video

NYC Cop Challenges Street Performer To Epic Dance Off

This video by Marcqiese Marc has gone viral over the weekend with over 1.3 million hits

It’s a common occurrence to stumble upon street performers of all kinds while travelling on the New York City subway. Musicians, drummers, and dancers are a plenty. 

But the cameraman of this video couldn’t believe his eyes when saw a NYC policeman challenge some street performers to a dance off. And blew them away!

Sadly, the cop isn’t really an officer of the NYPD, but stuntman and dancer Josh “Elusive” Vinyard. Still, that doesn’t make the scene any less entertaining.

Daredevil Base Jumps Off Of World Trade Center Freedom Tower

Daredevils James Brady, Andrew Rossig and Marko Markovich secretly climbed the World Trade Center Freedom Tower in New York City at 3 in the morning to base jump off the top last September.

They have only released the footage now of the 1776 foot drop under the YouTube channel NYC B.A.S.E. Jump

After posting the video they turned themselves in authorities according to The NYPost

The video was taken from a helmet camera which shows as one of the jumpers pulls his parachute cord and lands safely in the middle of the West Side Highway.

Don’t try this one at home kids.

Crazy Artists Live In Human Hamster Wheel Apartment

New York Daily News reports that artists Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder have begun an outrageous performance art piece called ‘In Orbit.’

The two constructed a giant human hamster wheel of sorts that they plan to live in, or on, for ten days. One lives in the inner parts of the wheel, while another lives on the outer. 

They constructed the giant wheel in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and have included all the necessary amenities, even a working bathroom and kitchen sink. 

To use different parts of their apartment, they must walk in tandem to move the ‘room’ into the center of the wheel. 

The project highlights “the relationship between roommates, space, and reliance on partners.”

Small Band Simply Crushes Subway Performance

You’ve most likely never heard of the small time band Too Many Zooz. They are only made up of a trumpeter, saxophonist, and a percussionist, but that’s all they need. 

Jake Dietrich was lucky enough to stumble upon the trio performing at the Union Square subway station. Most subway performers are a headache. But not these three. 

They simply crushed their performance and attracted countless travelers to make the rare decision to stop and listen to the music. 

Yet another reason why NYC is amazing. You never know what you’re going to stumble upon.
