Two Men Are Walking Every Block in New York City

“It’s the world’s greatest outdoor museum.”

CUNY professor William Helmreich and Matt Green explain why they are currently walking every block in New York City in a wonderful video directed by Riley Hooper for The New Yorker.

New York City has over 6,000 miles of streets across five boroughs. William Helmreich and Matt Green plan to walk every last block. Though they are doing the same thing, Helmreich and Green have vastly different approaches and reasons for embarking on the journey.

Back in 2010, Matt Green walked across the United States, from New York City to Oregon.
