I’m with one of my oldest and greatest friends… It’s so pleasing to see him achieve, conquer and take over NYC and the US of A.

The People That Make New York City – Subway Memoirs
April 30th, 2010
As you know, my website is based on everything to do with Sydney. It’s a beautiful and amazing city, with so much to offer. But sometimes it’s nice to escape, learn and infuse yourself with different experiences, stories and lives of people on the other side of the world.
I have done exactly this. Subway Memoirs is what I am writing about today. A website by a Sydney boy Matt Dillon, who has relocated to New York to expand his successful public relations business. Travelling around New York on the Subway, he looks at people each day, wondering what their life stories are. Every single person is different, unique and has an interesting tale to tell.
Each day we walk past people and wonder who they are, where they came from, where they are going, how they got what they have or don’t have and how they got all those wrinkles from a life they have lived.
Matt’s project, Subway Memoirs is a compilation of character driven interviews with the people that make up New York City. There is also an online platform which has been created to chronicle the day to day creation of ‘Subway Memoirs’ including: insights from noted New Yorkers, Author Video Logs and much more!
By Christmas 2010 these interviews will be collated into a chic coffee table keepsake for both New Yorkers and the world.
Heart and soul has gone into this interesting piece of work which captures a moment in time. I love learning about different people and this is a great way to go about it. I’d love to see something like this in Sydney.
Now go and make yourself a coffee, pop on Alicia Keys – The Element of Freedom in the background and relax in a comfortable chair and check out the site…
