The number of sidewalk sheds here in NYC is truly mind-blowing… apparently, there is around 340 miles—nearly 550km!—of them. In what will surprise nobody, it turns out that the reason there’s so much of it is because (spoiler alert!) building owners are cheapskates.

And because scaffolding is a billion-dollar industry (seriously? 🤯) here in the city, I’m guessing it’s not going away anytime soon.
