Stuy Overheard

You all provided the out-of-context quotes, and I published them.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The 2022-2023 school year is coming to an end, and yet, the concerning comments from the people of Stuyvesant are not. Whether you are hanging out in your grade’s respective “spot” in the school, crying in the bathrooms, or overcrowding Whole Foods with a group of friends, there will always be at least one out-of-context comment that you hear that makes you question humanity. You all recounted those provoking overheard quotes, and I published them.
