Announcing the Greatest 3-Minute New York Stories Ever


If you couldn’t tell by the name of this website, New York City is our home. We love it. Despite all the garbage on the sidewalks, trains not showing up on time, how expensive it is, and bars that we love closing all the time, it’s sort of hard to beat living here.

So, for this, our 25th 3-Minute Story event, we figured why not ask a bunch of writers we love to talk about what makes this place so great and sometimes so terrible. On March 20th, at Housing Works, one of our favorite places in this town, these people will tell stories in under 180 seconds that will either make you remember why you love living here, or why you want to get the hell out.
