This Insta Account Showcases New York Without Sugarcoating Anything And Here’re 40 Of Their Best Pics

 So we've heard Empire State of Mind, seen Taxi Driver but is New York City actually anything like the way it's being portrayed? Well, even if we can't visit it, there's a way to find the answer to this question online.

The Instagram account WhatIsNewYork shares user-submitted pictures and videos taken in the Big Apple, showing New York City documented through the eyes of its residents.

One quick glimpse and you'll see a shirtless guy strolling on a snowy street, a pack of dogs posing for a picture with bunny ears, and petty revenge — all the reasons why WhatIsNewYork already has over 834K followers.

WhatIsNewYork is actually a spinoff of another cool online project. "I created SubwayCreatures back in 2012 to document all of the funny, crazy things I was seeing. When that got big, I decided to expand the content outside of the subway into the streets of NYC," Rick McGuire, the man behind these Instagram accounts, told Bored Panda.

Now, McGuire receives close to 200 submissions per day, "but a lot of them are not worthy of being posted."

"I don't exploit the homeless or those who appear to be mentally ill and I try to spotlight people who are doing something intentional or funny to bring attention to themselves," he explained.

Rick said that the warm weather and people being able to dine out late have resulted in all sorts of crazy submissions. "Pet owners still bring their weird, exotic animals around the city with them and Washington Square Park has always been a hot spot for interesting activity."

"Another popular submission is photos of funny NY vanity plates. I posted a bunch of them and didn't realize how much of a 'thing' it was. My inbox was filled by the end of the day."

"More than half my followers are NYers and that number might be underestimated because there are people who move away and still follow because they miss it so much," Rick said.

According to him, the NY followers are quite easy to spot in the comment section. They're the ones who identify areas in the videos and can relate to a lot of what the page posts. "They are also not shocked or surprised by what they see most of the time," Rick added.
