VIDEO: Every Day New York City Caught In Slow Motion

Human Interest, Video 0

We don’t stop to think about it often, but New York City really is a special place. Or as Huey Lewis put it:

New York, New York, is everything they say
And no place that I’d rather be
Where else can you do a half a million things
All at a quarter to three

New York City is remarkable. With a population of over 8 million people, it’s probably the most dense-diverse location on the planet. And with all of that diversity, all of the different cultures, races, religions, New York City is overall a pretty safe place to live and visit. It’s simply amazing that so many people can live in such a small geographic region and have so few major human conflicts.

It is with that in mind that I present an elegant slow-motion visual of every day New York City:

My intention was to give the dreamlike impression of floating through a city full of people frozen in time, caught Pompeii-like, at a particular moment of thought, expression, or activity — a film to be viewed 100 years from now. - New York artists James Nares.
