I met a girl in a bar – all the best stories start that way – and upon getting home, added her to Facebook. You’ve heard this story a thousand times before.
Some days later, browsing the Internet for pictures of cats, I came across her Tumblr account which is now one of my absolute favourites — up there with Brokers With Their Hands On Their Faces, Kim Jong-Il Looking at Things and the wonderful Kate Middleton; Anything but Common.
Her addition to this venerable group is PDA – NYC (that’s Public Displays of Affection for you non-Americans) and it’s a covert collection of couples canoodling on the streets of New York City, or, more often, on the L train, which is a goldmine for these images. My favourite image so far is these hipsters linking their little fingers on the streets of Williamsburg.
Next time one of you New Yorkers tries to smuggle a secret smooch on a street corner, remember: we’re watching.
