“The city that never sleeps is at least napping,” says Sarah Henry on the Museum of the City of New York in “New York, Paused,” a stunning and thought-provoking four-minute video, narrated by Henry, that shows familiar scenes of New York City in an unfamiliar way.
Four ideas make New York, New York, Henry tells us: money, density, diversity and creativity. “They’re all rooted in and felt in the vibrant street life of New York. And that energy of New York’s street life is what I find most viscerally absent during this strange and quiet time of sheltering in place.” But, she concludes, talking about the frontline workers, “there are still a lot of people not sleeping in New York.”
