christopher-morris-01

For the next couple of months, in collaboration with the upcoming film A Most Violent Year, we are publishing a culture site about New York City in 1981. From the East Village to Esplanade, we’ll tell some of the stories that shaped the year, and add in some pop culture to the mix for the fun of it. So check it out here and enjoy, there’ll be new stuff up daily.

The Street Art Project by the Google Cultural Institute

If I was 10, I’d probably be stoked on this. However, as a jaded adult I find the whole experience very underwhelming, difficult to navigate, and lacking a discerning eye. As with a lot of destinations on the internet, the people being paid to feed the information rarely have the knowledge and understanding to truly bring a spectacular product to the public. But hey, it’s an “ongoing” project, so it’ll either get better, or very, very worse. With that in mind, enjoy yourself
