Living in New York I’d grab my Canon 7D, or S95, and shoot footage of what was going on around me. It seemed like a never ending project and you could stay filming life in New York for a long time. But eventually I put my camera down and started to edit. Here’s the end result, it’s a bit rough and ready but that’s life in the Big Apple I guess.

A Year in New York from Andrew Clancy on Vimeo.

Update: The video has gotten an amazing response though people have rightly asked where is the footage of other aspects of New York life like the Yankees or certain neighborhoods and parts of the city. I think I should’ve called it My Year in New York! I couldn’t feature every part of the New York story, just the parts I experienced while I had my camera. If it’s not in the video it doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it!

Turn up the volume or put your in earphones for the beautiful song ‘We Don’t Eat’ by Irishman James Vincent McMorrow. The song is available as a free download on Amazon during November for U.S. customers​gagdygsv

    hay Barry – the link to the video is jacked. That’s the technical term for ‘the embed code has been rendered as a part of the .. block, thus resulting in no actual embed’

    But I like ‘jacked’ better.


    BR: Thanks — fixed it

    Hah! Indeed it is.

    I had the link in my comment, too, and when I submitted was surprised to see it had been completely dropped. Also, the ‘..’ up there was actually inside a set of escaped paragraph tags. Oh, well.

    Nice! Brings back memories from when I lived across the river in NJ many years ago. As the saying goes, there is no place like NYC…

    I recognize so many of those moments.

    Yup. It’s a cliche people who haven’t lived here get sick of, but it’s true. No place like it.
