Stoops, otherwise known as the front steps, used to be busy with families hanging out and kids playing. Today stoops are empty. Three New York Design students, who were mapping a neighborhood, noticed an elderly guy sitting alone who complained no one ever says hi anymore. So, the trio began a campaign with 100 neon flyers instructing people to SIT HERE. Their Web site receives comments from those nostalgic for stoop culture, like "Whenever we played tag with friends, the stoop was always Base." (AP story)
