Sidewalk Psychiatry

New York, New York

A routine trip can prompt reflections on everything from future goals to last night’s dinner conversation. As people sacrifice personal time for hectic schedules, these casual occasions for reflection become all the more important. Sidewalk Psychiatry encourages self-evaluation in transit by posing critical questions on the pavements of New York City. Daily ponderings and emotional problems can be prodded and treated on the go, free of charge.

“Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts.” – Søren Kierkegaard
