Protesting the RNC via directions

Phoebe Connelly

Heading to New York for the Republican National Convention? Check out The People's Guide to the Republican National Convention, an entirely pleasing map that you can print out and tape together at your own underpaid office job. It will guide you through the vagaries of locating a public toilet, a WIFI hotspot or a cheap dinner. Complete with a legal crib sheet and helpful navigational advice, such as these notes on walking:Jaywalking is the norm in this city. When you come to a street corner you should walk right off it as if you expect to be able to cross the street. But don't expect traffic to slow down or stop for you.
