New York is a vibrant city. You probably have heard, it never sleeps. And as Frank said again and again: "If you can make it here you can make it anywhere."

It's a concrete jungle where dreams are made. More than 8.5 million people from all over the world call the Big Apple home, and another 60 million or so visit it every year.

That happens for a good reason: no matter what you love or which are your interests – art, food, architecture, photography, shopping, sightseeing, theater, music, romance, adventure, exploration – New York is the place where you can find it all and much more.

It's a new surprise on every corner, every day. It's a dream in every heart. Just have your eyes and sensibility open. In New York you can learn a new thing every single day. In New York you can make your dream come true. So, why not give it a try?


A transformation of the sights, sounds, and personalities of the subway system into a singular New York City experience.


If you want the perfect distillation of what makes New York New York, just ride the subway for a few days. Or better yet, watch this short film from the comfort of your couch.

Shot over the course of 10 days at 120 stations in all five boroughs, Stations: A Quick Scan Through NYC blends scripted scenes and pure documentary to offer a captivating glimpse at New York life.

'Stations' was developed by the collaborative filmmaking group Snowday, with Roddy Hyduk directing, and Chelsea Hyduk, Josh Buoy, and Meredith Finch producing.

Roddy Hyduk, who lived in Manhattan after graduating from the University of Michigan (and has since returned to Ann Arbor), has always been fascinated by the subway.

The film jumps from one station to the next, as if the viewer were changing TV channels, to give a taste of each station and its surrounding neighborhood. Three young people dance to a drummer at W. 4th Street, near New York University. A man sings an a capella rendition of "Stand By Me" before a woman gives him groceries at Times Square-42nd St. Pouring rain has passengers shrieking as they exit the train at 39th Ave in Long Island City, Queens. The little moments, taken together, reveal New York in all its imperfect glory.

The hope is that through the sum of all the stations represented, the unique texture of New York might reveal itself in a new and compelling way.
