Known around the world under the iconic tag line as the city that never sleeps, New York has a reputation for being one of the most active, diverse and multicultural places in the world. It’s a city that never fails to capture my heart and now, even if I’m physically far from there there is still a way for me to live stream one of my favourite cities.
This is New York now
is a real-time visualisation tool sharing photos as they happen live in New York on Instagram. The site allows you to live life in the city 24 hours a day 7 days a week from no matter where you are in the world. So far, 590,254 photos have been seen & shared via the site which gathers its information based on users geo-tag locations.
The cool thing is that the This is now
project exists for many other cities including Las Vegas
, Sao Paulo
. The really interest thing is to check out the different cities and see how different their live streams can be; people in Tokyo tend to post a lot of picture so food, skylines and graffiti is the Instagram trend right now in Paris and maybe it comes a no surprise that the feed for Las Vegas involves a lot of dancing girls and cocktails.
Do you use Instagram; if you do catch up with the @travelettes and see our stream here
