2006_04_arts_plusminus.jpgWe love music videos that show pieces of the city. Lucky for us, with all of the bands in this city - many have produced NY-centric videos.

Levy has a scandalous one filmed in the Hotel on Rivington. The Cloud Room has a cool one for their song Hey Now Now. And now +/- has some great time lapse videos for their songs, all shot in New York. Check this one out for their song She's Got Your Eyes. We've been watching it an trying to identify as many places as we can.

Update: This Mark McAdam's video was just sent to us, directed by Mike Myers and featuring LES establishments like Lucky Jack's and Teany. And of COURSE Ted Leo's Me and Mia video is a great one.

What's your favorite New York video?
