Believe me, this was no easy feat—but ladies and gentlemen: we did it. With the help of our relentlessly cool (and suspiciously Internet-famous) social media editor, Molly McGlew, we managed to break 10 New York City laws within 60 minutes.
For this project, I did a deep dive into the NYC law books and found several outrageous laws—known as Blue Laws—and coupled them with some easy-to-execute petty infractions to pull off this spectacle. Most of these ridiculous Colonial regulations came into effect around 1617 and were either printed on blue paper, or bound in books with blue covers.
They were there, so we exploited them. That's America.
