An ode to New York’s amoeba of scaffolding

If you’ve visited New York, you’ve wondered why one of the country’s oldest cities always looks like it is still being built. Since living here for a little more than a year, I have heard of a lot of mixed feelings toward the scaffolding that is shifting from block to block, in a never-ending cycle. The team behind the ODD NY vimeo channel have a great new animation paying homage to the metal webs of construction as the third installment in their series on New York. The narrator perfectly encapsulates the New York I know with the final lines,”This city is going to be great one day. Whenever it’s finished.”
