If you’ve been here, you’ll recognize it. The globs of old paint on metal, the gum-strewn concrete, the bricks, the bricks, the bricks. Yes, the textures of New York City are unmistakable. It’s a kind of grit and wear unique to this place. Director Ynon Lan captures it all perfectly–from subway tiles to Central Park grass–in his new short film. Have a watch.
