us more about the "sounds of new york"
The website is unique. Thanks to its
24 sounds sampled from such places as the
subway, the Staten Island ferry or the
bustling streets of Chinatown and thanks
also to the vivid pictures catching New
York city at its busiest, what used to be
quite ordinary and two dimensional
suddenly comes alive with the addition of
real life sounds. Your computer room is
transported to Manhattan ! We are arriving
to Grand Central Station on board a train
in the subway. We are at the Empire
State building enjoying the sights. Or we
are on Broadway and the wail of an
ambulance siren betrays the urgency of
life in the Big Apple.
Why do you propose several versions
of the same sound ?
Two versions of the same sound clip are
available. Depending on one's bandwidth
one can choose between an abridged version
or a fuller version.
can't hear sounds ! Why it's not
functioning on my computer ?
Are you using a pop-up killer ? If you are
using any kind of pop-up killer, you must
shut it down while your are visiting this
website. The sounds are played thanks to
pop-ups. That's the best way to broadcast
these sounds on the web. It's still not
functionning ? Send us an e-mail
