The Kid Should See This

New York City’s pothole repair team


Every day, on a Tumblr called “The Daily Pothole,” New Yorkers get a peek inside the inner workings of a city system few knew existed: the men who repair our potholes. Tumblr spent a day with the crew that makes up New York City’s pothole repair team.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.

Curated, kid-friendly, independently-published. Support this mission by becoming a sustaining member today.

The makers of the SAVE plug-in are no longer supporting it. For site speed and security, I've chosen to discontinue its use. If you have saved videos, please back them up with browser bookmarks, Pinterest, or another page saving tool, before they disappear in May 2021. Thank you.
