20 Trash Treasures People Found On The Side Of The Road In New York City

Published 3 weeks ago

If you don’t know what ‘stooping’ is, it’s an old New York tradition where people leave their unwanted furniture on the sidewalk for other people to take free of charge. You can actually snag some pretty good stuff this way but since NYC is such a large city, cruising around looking for stuff can be quite time-consuming. That’s why someone created an Instagram page dedicated entirely to sharing the ‘trash treasures’ that are currently waiting for their new owners on the sidewalks of New York City.

Check out the most incredible curbside treasures spotted on the streets of New York City in the gallery below! Don’t know how about you, but looking at these pictures, I’ve never felt so tempted to pick up someone else’s trash ever before!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
