Although I moved to New York in November of 2008, I feel as though I just started enjoying and appreciating all that the city has to offer. Having a job, not only that I love, but one that keeps me tied very close to the heart of the city, has made all the difference. And while there are certainly days where the city kicks my ass, I am starting to grasp just how special this city is. It is hard to put into words what it is like living here – you really can’t do the city, both the positive and negative things about it, justice.
Thankfully freelance cameraman Andrew Clancy has captured some of the spirit of the city in his 4-minute short film, A Year In New York. He started filming his life in New York City last January and just kept going. Eventually he stopped, and when he did he sat down and edited his footage into this amazing film.
How knows how long Matt and I will call New York City our home, but while we are here, I am going to do my best to take advantage of everything this city has to offer. And while I will never sport a Yankees jersey or cheer for the Giants, I will root for the city of New York.
