For Improv Everywhere‘s latest mission, they created separate walking lanes for tourists and New Yorkers on a Fifth Avenue sidewalk. Department of Transportation “employees” were on hand to enforce the new rules and ask pedestrians for their feedback on the initiative. Enjoy the video first and then go behind-the-scenes with the photos and report on IE’s site:

  • Why can’t we all get along without divisions?

  • Brilliant!

    As a former New Yorker, I fully support this change.

    The only more pressing issue before NYC is to drop the tolls, but require all CT and NJ commuters to take a bag of trash with them when they leave for the day.

  • Man this is awesome I hate those chinese people that walk like 1 mile an hour fucking slow asses making our so miserable and difficult to live. I honestly think this is the best thing that has happened in past decade so far I hate slow chinese people when they walk keep this up I love it please bring this to Vancouver B.C. Canada.

  • Mmusing, as are all things Imrov Everywhere is involved in. Leaving the cleanup for taxpayer funded crews though is ridiculous.

  • The path was made with sprayable chalk. No different than if a child colored on the sidewalk. The (non-taxpayer funded) rain will take care of it.
