Reminds me of Nick Park's Creature Comforts. Nice!

Oh, beautiful, wonderful work. Very like Creature Comforts, as not_on_display says.

Hey! I've met that phone!

So much better than my expectations, which basically amounted to hipsters doing something detestably annoying.

And, yes, very much like Creature Comforts.

Very nice. I lost it when the construction barriers whistled at the passing woman.

Oh, that is lovely, and made me homesick.

This reminds me of another creative look on NYC done in the Times a few weeks ago. I think it was posted to Metafilter. It used Lego pieces.

What an outstanding video. This really made my day.

Fantastic. Also made me think of Creature Comforts.

Yes, Creature Comforts here too, but still it would seem their could be endless permutations of this sort of thing it's such a good technique.

Great stuff. It is very much like Creature Comforts, but I think what is making that connection for everyone, apart from the content (and the fact that the Italian luggage sounds somewhat like the Central American leopard, or whatever it was) is the sound design.

The animations are very simple and well thought out and the end result is fantastic. Thanks for this.

Very cool.
Thanks, miss Lynn.

Ditto and ditto. Thanks for the post.

Great. I've never been to New York but as far as I understand it (having lived in other big cities) the people there have a deep physical connection to the city. This portrays that beautifully. Whimsical and poignant at once.

I loved it. Absolutely loved it.

Absolutely right.

They missed the talking water fountain in Central Park. Why didn't they interview him?

Maybe because he's a jerk. I just knew I wasn't the only one to think so.

I was a little weirded out at first haha, but it was a good video.

I love New York. This makes me love it more.
