Humans of New York is a page that will make you feel good. It's a beautiful collection of the diversity, beauty, and strangeness of New York City told through portraits of everyday people by photographer Brandon Stanton.
"Humans of New York began as a photography project in 2010. The initial goal was to photograph 10,000 New Yorkers on the street, and create an exhaustive catalogue of the city’s inhabitants. Somewhere along the way, I began to interview my subjects in addition to photographing them. And alongside their portraits, I'd include quotes and short stories from their lives."

Fun fact: There are plenty of pages named "Humans of …." inspired by this project. Maybe you will find "Humans of your city"
