Most New Yorkers would be overjoyed if they only had to witness their subway station for a hot second. But since we can’t teleport, this video from Snowday is the next best way to live out our fantasies (h/t Fast Co. Design). Titled “Stations: A Quick Scan Through NYC,” this two-minute video was shot over ten days at 120 subway stations throughout the five boroughs, compiling footage as if the viewer were changing television channels. The quick scan, which features a somewhat odd blend of scripted scenes and documentary footage, is meant to evoke the “unique texture of New York…in a new and compelling way.”

The video comes courtesy of collaborative filmmaking group Snowday, made up of director Roddy Hyduk and producers Chelsea Hyduk, Josh Buoy, and Meredith Finch. Hyduk told Fast Co., “There are so many layers of information to be absorbed within the context of each individual station. Imagining what’s happening simultaneously across the entire system sparked my initial curiosity. This required staying a while in places where millions only ever consider passing through as quickly as possible.”
