About Millennials of New York

"Millennials of New York," from Elite Daily writers Connor Tole and Alec MacDonald, is a comic spin-off of the popular blog and bestselling book Humans of New York. Where Humans takes portraits of people with real struggles and experiences, relaying the subjects’ harrowing stories in the descriptions, @millennials_of_newyork features images of NYC Millennials, telling their superficial struggles—how man buns are really difficult to upkeep, how Netflix saved their relationship. Founded in May of 2015, the satirical feed rings cringingly true to its 55.2K Instagram and 200K Facebook followers and press, including People Magazine, New York Observer, and NY Daily News.
