The NYC Tourist Lane

To improve the speed on the New York sidewalks and prevent pedestrian accidents Improv Everywhere came up with yet another urban prank.

Slow tourists are seperated from the fast New Yorkers by a painted line in the middle of a sidewalk in busy Manhattan. Two supposts ask people to walk on the right lane. On the left tourists can do whatever tourists do, like standing still, walking slowly and changing direction out of a sudden. On the right lane busy New Yorkers can hurry up a bit.
