Everyday Hero of the Day: NYC construction worker Gary Russo has made a habit of serenading 2nd Avenue passers-by with Frank Sinatra standards during his 30-minute lunch breaks.
Armed with a karaoke kit he brings to work every day, Russo, a Local 40 ironworker, attempts to dispel the constant construction noise, if only for a little while.
"Forget all the noise, traffic and the impact of the 2nd Ave. Subway," reads the sign just behind him. "Enjoy the music."
Don’t mind if I do.
Epic Back Tat of the Day: Taiwanese tattoo aficionado Annfaye Kao likes Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs so much that she decided to dedicate her entire back to the Disney classic.
The award-winning tat, which the 27-year-old says was inspired by a dream she had, took three months to complete. “At times I was in such pain that I wanted to hurry it up,” she says, “but luckily I didn’t give up and got it finished.”
According to Annfaye, everyone she knows loves it, “which makes me feel lucky to have so many understanding and supportive people around me in life.”
