Big Brother is most certainly watching your daily life in the East Village. Everyone knows surveillance cameras are everywhere these days, but when you actually see the tally, it’s pretty crazy. According to the latest (unofficial) count by the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (aka MoRUS), there are roughly 1,275 in this area of Manhattan alone.
And to that end, the three-year-old museum now sponsors a unique new walking tour that helps uncover each surveillance camera installed within public view. We are told that the purpose of the event is educational, as in “how to spot the cameras, how many of them there are, who owns them, etc.”
In case you’re interested in joining the inaugural walking tour, it goes down Saturday, July 11. Cost is $5 per person, rain or shine. Meanwhile, we are told that there will be a second outing sometime in August.
