Thrash Lab‘s Empty America timelapse travel series takes you to New York City. All the bridge and tunnel people have been sent home and Manhattan has been wiped empty! Penn Station, Wall Street, Central Park, Times Square, The Met and Fifth Avenue have never looked so vacant.

Previously, we featured the San Francisco edition of Empty America. Also, take a look at the behind-the-scenes video below, as director Ross Ching comments on the recipe of crafting a popular video.

This time lapse video has taken on a slightly eerie quality as thousands have been displaced because of flooding caused by Hurricane Sandy and the superstorms in New York City.

Stay stafe, NYC, we love you…
