You can’t make this shit up. The Script is where New Yorkers write down the crazy stuff they see and hear everyday. Share the gems you witness on the streets and they could live on as creative productions like music, writing, art and more.
You can write a Quote, Scene or Character description.
Scene Title: Kneecaps
Everyone’s got an “I’m walkin’ here” story because everyone says it. However, my first night in NYC I walked out of the place where I was staying. An Old-Brooklyn Italian was walking across the street toward Luigi’s.
Yellow cab’s minding it’s 40-mile-an-hour business.
The old, fat guy walks across despite nagging warnings from the blinking orange hand.
The cab hits him, knocks his kneecaps hard enough that they buckle, and he flies up and onto the hood. The squeal of brakes.
The cinematic roll of Old Brooklyn weight onto pavement. He gets up. “I’m walking here!” Walks off fine.
Quote Title: YUMMY
I was eating a salad, while watching TV and noticed I had a fork in each hand. I continued to eat with double enjoyment.
Character Title: One

Scene Title: Oh Bushwick
Frustrated, bored and mildly irritated, he sits face-first on his girlfriend’s bed, groaning. Another lame night rotting away in the mckibbin lofts smoking cigarettes to the tune of the neighbor’s pounding subwoofer.
Scene Title: SELL OFF
SINCE 2008 PUBLIC LIBRARY FUNDING HAS BEEN DECIMATED ABROGATED BY THE LIBRARY SLAYER MAYOR BLOOMBERG. HE HAS SLASHED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN COLD HEARTED CASH. WHAT BALDERDASH!
MANY LIBRARIES ARE AT RISK. THAT’S SO SICK. BIG BUSINESS WANTS US TO FAIL. OVERCROWDED LIBRARIES THEY WOULD DOWNSCALE.
EDUCATION, JOB SEARCHES, COMPUTER ACCESS, DERAILED, A GOOD ECONOMIC FUTURE CURTAILED.
ITS NOT PRETTY NEW YORK CITY HAS NO PITY FOR THE NITTY-GRITTY.
