Last night, I found myself among thousands in a screaming protest up to Columbus Circle, chanting and crying out against the election results. It was a pure and cathartic moment. But now that I'm back at work, I could use another escape from the shock of Tuesday night's results.
Fortunately, the experimental artist and unlicensed "subway therapist" Levee has set up a way for New Yorkers to publicly—and peacefully—vent their emotions. If you head to the 14th St station, in the tunnel between Sixth and Seventh Aves, you can grab a post-it and a pen and share what you're feeling.
Since Wednesday morning, over 1,500 commuters have posted their reactions on the wall. As expected from an open New York sharing space, the thoughts and opinions had a big range. One note reads: "Hope resides in each and every one of us. It does not end with one man or one office." Another reads: "Defy the Law," and there are more than enough "Love Trumps Hate" stickies to go around. You can check out Levee's instagram account here.
More acts of protest are popping up as the week continues, including a demonstration at Union Square this Saturday.
