Canned Air From NYC…(Now We’ve Seen It All!)
Being on vacation the last two weeks, I’ve really come to miss New York City…the beep-beep of the taxis, the Korean deli that charges $4 for a bottle of Coke, the summertime city air…
Ah yes…that lovely mix of nut vendor/subway (the train and the restaurant)/Central Park horses/steamy asphalt/melting pot of humans…a true city air quite like no other.
You will be perhaps as delighted as I to discover you can now have a taste of NYC air even if you are thousands of miles away. Etsy artist Kirill Rudenko has created, for your smelling pleasure, “Original Canned Air From New York City“. For only $9.99, you can own your own little piece of New York. The artist describes it as being:
20% Empire State Building
10% Grand Central Terminal
10% Chrysler Building
20% Statue of Liberty
10% Little Italy, Chinatown
10% Brooklyn Bridge
10% Times Square
10% Central Park
Any true New Yorker is, of course, thinking: What about the outer boroughs? Doesn’t Staten Island get a scent?! Shockingly, the artist is not from Williamsburg, but rather, Prague. That explains it all.
