"Millennials of New York" Shares The Satirical Struggles Of Your Average 20-Something Living In The City

If you aren’t following Humans of New York on Facebook, you need to. It’s a page created by a New York photographer where he shares the photographs and stories of random people he meets on the streets in the city.

Millennials of New York is basically a spoof on Humans of New York, except it’s only about millennials and their “struggles.” The descriptions are made up and purely satirical, but some of them are so scary accurate that it really makes you wonder.
