Watching New Yorkers Miss Their Train Can Be An Epic Experience

A New Yorker can’t miss his or her train. No… never. We are running against the time there and New Yorkers excel at it. But what happens when there’s an empty train whizzing by us in New York?

This short film by Audrey Stanfield—featuring many faces familiar in the city’s improv comedy scene and brilliantly set to Enigma’s “Return to Innocence” shows just what happens when a busy New Yorker see his or her train speeding off without any one on it.

New York, being one of the most populous urban centers in the world, is not only a melting pot of various ethnicities and social classes, but is also the lifeline for finance, media and arts amongst others.

That’s what makes life in this city really fast-paced. New Yorkers don’t have time to waste, or to catch the next train. They have to be THERE, and they have to be there NOW. You know the domino effect. Lose a minute here, a minute there and the entire day is ruined.

We might think it’s not the end of the world but this video shows how for New Yorkers it is. Surely, there’s no place like New York in the world.

As R. L Stine, the writer says, “I’m so glad I live in New York City and not in the United States.”
