Trash For You – Treasure For Someone Else

Stooping is a longtime New York tradition: someone casts away their no longer needed furniture (and other things) on the sidewalk in front of their home and anyone who needs them can salvage the items for whatever use they desire.

But in summer 2019, stooping made it to social media as well — an Instagram account called Stooping NYC started sharing the best offers from the city’s public display.“Beanie Babies Used To Have Real Value! They Still Might… But As The Sign Says The Real Value Is As A Friend. On Cooper Street Between Knickerbocker And Irving.”

“What A Phenomenal Addition!”
