New York City

Crowded manhatten is a wicked place to dollar hustle. Washington Square is a popular spot for subcultures and street performers to hang out and street writers have been known to frequent. The Highline is a pedestrianised, conveyor belt of tourists and people out for a nice day. It can be popular to sit on a bench there. Street writers have also been spotted outside MOMA and the MET museums.
