MOBILIZING THE EXPERIENCE: Tools for Exploring, Discovering, and Experiencing the Right Cheap Eats Locally

A thesis exploration by Jennifer Shim & Richard PĂŠan Communication Design and Technology BFA program Parsons, The New School for Design


CLAIM This application will provide quality images, videos, menu items, prices, address, yelp reviews, and any other additional content right off of a map. It will aid in capturing the experience of good quality cheap mom-and-pop restaurants in the lower Manhattan area. Small mom-and-pop restaurants will have more visibility to a specific audience such as young adult college students or anyone on a budget looking for something cheap to eat and look cool while doing it.

People like to eat good food for cheap. PERIOD!
