At Last: Installing Tourist/Native Walking Lanes In New York

On Fifth Avenue, not far from Disinformation’s offices, pranksters posed as Department of Transportation employees and reconfigured the sidewalks into “tourist” and “New Yorker” lanes and spent the day training pedestrians on how to use them. This is something for which city citizens have been clamoring for decades — I’m glad these rogue urban planners stepped in and made it happen.

    Yeah, segregate the tourists so the natives know who the easy prey is……

    In this case, the “New York state of mind” blows……

    New York city has an ego the size of Texas…..

    I think it's pretty funny as a gag.

    People are generally incapable of following basic instructions like enter/exit signs though, so as long as people are aware that it's only a joke…

    “Boo these tourists whose money are supporting a great deal of the people living in this city, they’re ruining this city” Ahhh go fuck yourself New York.
