Originally published by comedy group Improv Everywhere in June of 2010, this classic prank involved painting chalk lines on the sidewalk outside of the Flatiron Building in order to create a slow lane for tourists, and a fast lane for New Yorkers. The lines stayed on the sidewalk for 4 days before the City's department of transportation washed them off. When asked for comment on the lane, the New York City Mayor at the time Michael Bloomberg responded:
When I saw it I said, 'Oh, that's a nice thing to do.' I thought it was very cute.
It's been 5 years people, it's time we made these tourist lanes happen! You know, job creation and stuff...
