'New York Minute' By Cleverkids Captures NYC's Essence In 60 Seconds (VIDEO)

From the hustle and bustle of Grand Central to the Edvard Munch "Scream" debut at the MoMA, two filmmakers have assembled a video hoping to capture the essence of our fair city in just one minute.

Similar to this powerful video of a year in one man's life, the Cleverkids' 'New York Minute' is made of clips lasting less than a second; the snapshots managing to portray whatever gives New York City that special je ne sais quoi.

Happy New Year New York!
