Feeling down? Need advice? 

Tired of 2016 kicking your ass and stomping your dreams? Maybe watch your language, but head to the Bedford Avenue stop in Williamsburg and take a seat.

In something that can only be described as straight out of a Peanuts comic, there's apparently a small child seeking to help emotionally distraught New Yorkers for a nominal fee. 

As reported by Time Out NY, Ciro Ortiz is 6th grader posted up on the subway platform offering emotional support and advice to subway riders who need to vent about whatever is on their mind. 

Ciro Ortiz can be found hanging out on Sundays from noon to 2 p.m., and charges the small price of $2.

So that's no nickel fee like what Charlie Brown's Lucy (her last name is van Pelt btw... who knew?!) was charging because, well, probably inflation, but it's still a pretty good deal. 

Ortiz created the stand after being bullied at school, and felt he wanted to help other people.

Some would say the booth is another form of catharsis for New Yorkers.  


If you can't take a 11-year-old seriously, other forms of catharsis in NYC might be found in the subway wall Post-it notes and the New Year's Eve confetti. Or, you know, you can grab your pillow and scream into it. 


Why not add it to your list of de-stress tactics?
