In a city with almost 20 million people, it can be easy to just be another face lost in the crowd, just another number. Massive metropolises can dehumanize their residents – how often do you avoid eye contact with passersby or stare forward in silence amidst the crowds on the subway? At OKI NYC, we are committed to spreading stories about the best of humanity in a place that sometimes feels oppressively inhuman. Here we share stories of hope, tales of communities coming together, and accounts of strangers helping strangers. This is New York City at its best! We hope this blog inspires you to be opening kind to others as well. Together, we can make NYC a better place to live.
