Travel Cinemagraph Series: New York in Moments, part I

We’re having an absolute blast in New York!

We have a bunch of (hopefully awesome) photos to edit and sort through and I’m going to start compiling some posts to give you a real feel for what New York is all about.

Anyway, onto the Cinemagraphs.. I’m calling this series sub section “New York in Moments“.

This guy was dancing in Times Square, he reminds me of Michael Jackson 😀 Luckily we got some footage of him doing his thing and I turned it into a Cinemagraph…


Trudy jumping for joy because she’s in New York on Fifth Avenue! American flags swish proudly along this street and many shops have set up display windows to celebrate Christmas. Jumpity, jump.


Here’s a taste of what’s coming to Active Backpacker over the next few weeks…

  • New York by Night
  • A review of our room here in East Village on Manhattan
  • Eating around East Village
  • Brooklyn Winter Flea Markets
  • New York Knicks, Swoosh!

European content shan’t be forgotten either, as we still have a lot of content and adventures to share about that.

And there will be more New York Cinemagraphs of course 🙂

    They just keep getting better and better Tom. I one of the guy dancing made me laugh. Are you still in NY? I’ll be there Dec 26 – Jan 5, and if you guys are around would love to grab a drink!

      Thanks Stephen! Yeah we are still in NYC, but we leave tomorrow 🙁 Shame our dates didn’t mesh or we could have totally met up for a beer! Have fun being there for the New Year!
