New Tumblr blog gives best spots for criers on the go
New Yorkers may have a reputed tough no-nonsense exterior, but that doesn’t mean the tears don’t come out once in a while.
For those weeping as they walk around the city, a new Tumblr is tracking the best places to let the waterworks loose.
The first stop: a Duane Reade on Fifth Avenue between 44th and 45th streets.
“I cried here yesterday during my lunch break in the vitamins aisle and experienced NO problems at all!,” wrote Kerry Osborne in her inaugural post. “It was a wonderful 10-15 minute cry that is so rare to come by these days. Come cry here quick before the word gets out! Highly recommended!”
For criers those on the go, the site recommends the 7 train.
“No matter what time of day, every single person on the 7 train is in a deep sleep or stupor,” Osborne wrote. “Feel free to cry as audibly as you want on this train, no one will EVER look at you!! It’s a criers dream!”
New York Magazine tracked Osborne down on Wednesday. She revealed the idea came about as a joke with friends after she was broken up with.
While she’s written all of the review on the site so far, Osborne told the magazine that she’s receiving plenty of submissions so far.
