That’s one way to try and bridge the divide.
Alex Reinoso, 33, has been posting fliers around the city seeking a conservative ideologue to help bring some fresh perspectives to his life.
“Hi, I’m Alex. I’m a liberal. All of my friends are liberal,” his fliers state. “My newsfeed is one-sided. Are you conservative and dealing with the same issue? If so I’d like to talk. We'll take things slow at first and see where it goes from there”
"I kind of didn’t want to have a complete agenda. I just wanted to listen and have an engaging conversation," Reinoso told DNAinfo New York. "It’s kind of like getting to know our neighbor. I believe in that community, having opposing views but [being] able to talk it out."
Reinoso, who works in advertising, said he has met with two people so far and spoke with a third man on the phone who drove from Omaha, Nebraska, to help his daughter move to the city.
They spoke about issues like health care reform and "Trump a little bit," Reinoso said. They eventually found common ground after discussing ethics in journalism and the proliferation of fake news.
"I said, 'This is a really healthy conversation.' I’ve talked to people who want to yell at me."
Reinoso said he planned to keep the project going for at least Trump's first 100 days in office, and isn't trying to change anyone's mind.
"It’s been nice to listen."
