If youíre dining out today, donít 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 UNICEFís [Tap Project]( ďBut, donít I usually get my H20 for free?Ē you ask. Yeah, you do, but not everyone is as lucky with the easy access to NYCís refreshing tap water. You canít 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.
