From our offices in New York, Time senior editor Jonathan Woods positioned a camera overlooking Radio City Music Hall and Rockefeller Center to shoot thousands of photos between 4:30 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. Friday in order to capture the snow accumulating — and New Yorkers busily moving through the storm — on the frenetic streets of midtown Manhattan.
The nice thing about timelapses or, in this case, a TIMElapse is that the bad weather is over a lot more quickly. Also in this compressed world, people get around in cars at a much faster and efficient rate. A.k.a. “busily.”
