VIDEO: Take a stop-motion trip to 1983 New York City

In just under six minutes, you can take a (mostly) stop-motion trip to 1983 New York City in this short film called "N.Y.C. (No York City)" by Rick Liss with music by Laurie Anderson. The video follows a dizzying path through Manhattan, past familiar landmarks like the World Trade Center, the subway, and Central Park (check out the roller skaters!). While the clothes and cars may seem dated, in many ways, it's not much different than 2011 New York City, except with more mimes.
