NYC’s Water: So Nice, They Gave It A Price

Written by Kari Milchman on . Posted in Eat & Drink, Posts.

If you’re dining out today, don’t be surprised if you get charged $1 for a glass of tap water. Flippin’ gentrification! Well, not really. The price tag is in celebration of World Water Day and UNICEF’s Tap Project. “But, don’t I usually get my H20 for free?” you ask. Yeah, you do, but not everyone is as lucky with the easy access to NYC’s refreshing tap water. You can’t even buy a pack of gum for a buck nowadays, but $1 could go a long way towards helping UNICEF provide clean drinking water to 1.1 billion people around the world.
