Millennials of New York parodies an entire generation hilariously


Humans of New York is the hugely popular website that has shared the countless inspiring, and often funny, stories of the cities’ citizens with the world.

Founded by photographer Brandon Stanton, the site has inspired many replicas and has been recently been credited with raising almost €2 million for an activist group in Pakistan.

Thanks to social media the website has changed the lives of many and it’s been one of our favourites for a long time.

However, a new parody of the site has also been making us laugh recently.

Millennials of New York is a new Facebook page created by Alec McDonald and Connor Toole, both writers at the popular site Elite Daily.

Elite Daily is a site which is dedicated to millennials everywhere and if often not afraid to take itself too seriously, despite what others may say, apparently.

Proving that the generation is not afraid to poke fun at itself, the pair have come up with a hilarious take on the HONY approach to street photography.

Just some of the millennial lifestyle trends they’ve had a laugh at:
