City Short – New York

Spring is in the air, for me that means one thing, weekly walks through our amazing city.   At least once a week I dedicate a day where I just walk around for hours taking in the sites of the city.  It’s my favorite reason for living in New York.  The trick for me is to get around without the use of mass transit.  I live right next to the Williamsburg Bridge so the first and last part of most of my walks start and end with a walk across the bridge. It’s an experience that I think is very unique to this city of bridges.

This video Narrated by Richard Christiansen of Chandelier Creative for the folks at Wallpaper Magazine captures that experience.

Streetscapes | Morgan Library

Now that spring is just around the corner I plan to resume one of my favorite activities, exploring our city.  One of the first places on my list is The Morgan Library.  Located in midtown Manhattan, the Morgan houses one of the world’s greatest collections of artistic, literary, and musical works, from ancient times to the medieval and Renaissance periods to the present day.  Here is a video from the The NY Times Streetscapes series and Lost & Found Films profiling this historic landmark.

This Must Be The Place – BYUN

This video from Lost & Found films profiles Chon Gon Byun and his eclectic home in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn.  It is a joy to see the intimate relationship Byun has with all of the assorted items found in his travels.  Byun describes his penchant for collecting like this,

“In New York, there is a lot that is thrown away and a lot that is sold.  You can create a lot of stories by putting these pieces together.”

This video is also a great example of the subtle and often undervalued power of sound editing.  Listen to the sounds of the space, the dead air, the small engines at work, how Byun’s voice fills this space.  Listen to how the soundtrack builds as the story builds.  Lost & Found films are on top of their game.
