Overheard Everywhere

Occasionally, we leave New York and also overhear great quotes that we’d like to use on the site, which we haven’t done when they’re not in an Office or Beach. To encourage our eavesdropping, we’ve launched Overheard Everywhere – The Voice of the Rest (of the world outside of New York). This site is a bit different than our others because, in addition to posting what we overhear ourselves and what our spies tell us, we will also link to the Best Of the other overheards on the Internet, on the hundreds of imitation overheard sites that have popped up — so, if you or a friend of yours runs your own overheard site, tell us about it, and we’ll read it daily and post and link to our favorites on your site, too. Let us know what you think at [email protected] or [email protected] Team Overheard

Overheard in the Bookstore

January 31st sees the release of Overheard in New York, the book. There are apparently people out there who have lives and don’t read websites; now they can see for themselves what this site we all love so much is all about. The book is perfect subway reading, and makes a great gift for Chicks, Dudes, Old ladies, Tourist moms and Crazy guys. And unlike
almost every other website turned into a book, we weren’t censored. You get the best of the best–and the worst of the worst!–as well as a bunch of quotes we saved especially for the print edition. We’re very excited and hope to make this an annual tradition. It’ll be
like Zagat’s, but with hobos. You can order it here. –Morgan & Michael (and 4 pages of contributors!)
