A dedicated virtual space for New Yorkers to vent and express their dissatisfaction with New York.
It would seem unnecessary to create an outlet for people, New Yorkers no less, to express themselves given the social media landscape. However, this dedicated space for anonymous self-expression and civic reflection has a niche purpose. Utilizing flow theory this site nurtures the range of social commentary, superficial to profound, without the gravitas, friction or obligation of forum involvement.
VENT NY serves as scapegoat, megaphone, burning effigy, bilge pump and litmus strip.
