New Yorkers Share What They Found Discarded And The Phrase ‘One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Treasure’ Has Never Been So Real (125 New Pics)

There’s a Lithuanian proverb, saying that we like it when our neighbor’s house is burning. We’re not very neighborly. So when I first heard about stooping — people putting stuff they no longer need on the curb to be taken home by someone who wants it — the whole thing sounded like a utopia to me. But it’s not. And there’s an Instagram account to prove it.

It’s called Stooping NYC. Created by a Brooklyn couple who prefer to remain anonymous, the account unites a wholesome community, constantly informing one another about the treasures around the city and showing off their best finds. We at Bored Panda already covered this online movement here and here but they’ve been keeping themselves really busy so we have to do an update! Enjoy.
