The cross-country series launched barely two weeks ago by LA film director Ross Ching has finally reached New York with tedious, time-consuming trick photography that shows us what it would be like if New York City was abandoned. Hahaha. Nice timing dude.

Hey, Times Square sure looks appetizing without all those tourists though. See all the “iconic” spots from Penn Station, Wall Street, Central Park, Times Square, the Met and Fifth Avenue, looking quite serene. Just like now. Sans the sideways rain, crumbling cranes and whatnot.
