After a year of shooting bits of footage from his daily life in New York, Andrew Clancy put together this portrait of his city. (Hint: 2:47 is my favorite.)

It sounds cheesy but it’s true: life is basically just a mash-up of tiny moments, soul-stirring soundtracks, and high-fives shared at sporting events. Clancy’s edit of random but significant moments from around the city gave me that funny can’t-describe-it-in-words feeling in the pit of my stomach that always makes me feel so tiny in a world full of cool things.

In his words, “that’s life in the Big Apple I guess.”
