Subway Therapy is the New Way Liberal New Yorkers are “Coping” with Trump Win

It’s been nearly a week since Donald Trump won the presidency of the United States, and protests are still erupting throughout the country. New Yorkers struggling with the result are now conducting a new way to protest – by posting sticky notes with messages of love, support, fear and hope on the walls of a subway station.

Officially dubbed “Subway Therapy,” thousands upon thousands of positive notes have been plastered on a tunnel which connects two Manhattan stations, the 14th Street stations at Seventh Avenue and Avenue of the Americas.

One note reads: “You will not divide us. Love is everything.” Another says: “It doesn’t end today.” More messages amongst the wall include “Am I the only one who is scared?” “I need a hug” and “I am angry.”

The artist responsible for the wall’s inception is Matthew “Levee” Chavez, who said he felt people needed to vent their emotions after the surprising defeat of rival Hillary Clinton. And since Wednesday, more than 1,500 people have shared their grief and anxiety by posting their thoughts on the wall.
