Paris vs. New York: A Charming Tally of Two Cities' Clichés

This video showcases a friendly visual match between the two cities as told by “a lover of Paris, wandering through New York.” Director and editor Tony Miotto adapted the concept from one man’s wildly popular online travel journal. That man, Vahram Muratyan, a graphic artist living between Paris and New York, is the author of the blog-then-book Paris versus New York. In the video, Miotto selects the best emblems from these works and pits them against each other for a delightful effect. To see more comparisons - from fashion icons to each city’s version of a converted railway park - visit his site.
