There is no shortage of love for New York City in the world, nor is there a shortage of time-lapse videos on the Internet. But combine the two in a skillful, artistic way, and we're sold. Pro time-lapse photographer Josh Owens spent time in 11 different hotel rooms in Times Square to get the footage for this paean to the City That Never Sleeps, "Manhattan in Motion."  The result is four minutes of streetscapes that remind us how beautiful a city can be.  We here at The A.V. Club are happy in our Chicago home, but who doesn't love New York?
