Word on the Street

Word on the Street

We bring you the most ridiculous chatter that New Yorkers overhear on the streets, the subways and everywhere in between


It's hard to find tranquility, peace and quiet in the city. Though the lack of privacy can be frustrating at times (we all have to put up with our fair share of people you will definitely see on the subway and crazy roommates), it also means New Yorkers enjoy the country’s best people-watching and overhear the oddest conversations. Every week, Gothamites eavesdrop on one another and tweet us the best lines they’ve heard around the city, then we round up our favorites. Read through each week’s chatter below—you may even find that you’ve been quoted.
