This month, The New York Times released the Living City series produced by Blue Chalk Media's NewsDox unit. The six-part video series looks at a range of major New York city and state infrastructure projects, from subways to waterways, waste management to steam systems.
I had the pleasure of working as an Assistant Camera on four parts of the series that look at New York City's extensive subway network, the role of steam as a greener energy source, the city's interconnected watershed, and the impact of Hurricane Sandy on the city's recovery and resilience.
Released on October 2, 2014, Finally a Second Avenue Subway looks at the new subway line being created on New York City's Upper East Side. Stalled since 1929, the vast construction efforts are impacting residents and local businesses in the highly congested area.
Released on October 9, 2014 A City Shaped by Steam looks at the history of the city steam system and explores how a technology that eliminated chimneys from the skyline in the early 20th century is today helping reduce carbon emissions and provide a cleaner source of energy for New York in the 21st.
Released on October 16, 2014 A Billion Gallons a day looks at the city's water supply. Assembled during the 20th century, the New York City watershed and the system's underground aqueducts are considered an engineering marvel.
