Video of the Day
New York Day: A Stunning Time Lapse Video Captures The City That Never Sleeps
March 19, 2013

This video is entitled 'New York Day' and was shot by Samuel Orr over the course of four trips to the Big Apple in 2011-2012.

He says the time-lapse sequences throughout were made from hundreds of thousands of still photos. A few clips are sped-up video.

Orr is now hoping to turn 'New York Day' into 'New York Year' with help from Kickstarter. You can read more about Orr's project and background here.

As he writes on Kickstarter, "New York City is a breathing, living place that is endlessly fascinating. Every turn on a street corner brings things into view that all too often have vanished from the rest of America.

During the day people pulse through the streets, tunnels, buildings, and parks. At night, its vast expanse twinkles and shines like few other cities.

This project means to capture this spectacle and to create (through time-lapse imagery and sounds) a film that is exhilarating (and just plain fun!) as it presents a year in the life of the greatest city on Earth."
