Watch Spike Lee’s 3-minute short film tribute to New York, New Yorkers, and healthcare workers

Acclaimed director Spike Lee has launched a video tribute to the New York Metropolis on Instagram, capturing how unusual the normally bustling metropolis feels amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

Set to the dissonant melody of Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York,” the three-minute montage launched Thursday exhibits off New York’s empty streets and locked up playgrounds, the results of vital social distancing and lockdowns. There are additionally pictures of a navy hospital ship and a Central Park discipline hospital, indicating this is not only a unusually quiet day.

“My Brief Movie-NEW YORK NEW YORK Is A Love Letter To It is Individuals,” wrote Lee on Instagram. “Plain And Easy.”

The video ends, after all, lingering on the town’s masked healthcare staff and the now-customary 7 p.m. applause for them, whereas Sinatra belts out that “it is as much as you, New York, New York.” 

A bit on the nostril? Possibly. Doesn’t suggest it is not efficient.
