A trip along the East River to see the clouds coming from the steam stacks over the Con Edison steam generation plant on 14th Street. I had fun cutting the footage to some creepy background music from audionautix.com. It’s a pretty cool site, it has tons of Creative Commons Licensed cinematic style music. They are free to use for any purpose as long as you credit the site. The Steam plant provides heat for many buildings in the area as well as generate electricity.
I thought it would be cold enough for there to be a lot of ice in the East River, but there was not so much. Music from the play Atomic Stone Age by Alec Bennett and Michael Natale – 1998

A stream of motorcycle cops go by, and cops from all around the area gather for the funeral of Rafael Ramos who was killed along with his partner Wenjian Liu, as they sat in their squad car on a meal break in Brooklyn last week. Ramos is being buried in Cypress Hill Cemetery, Brooklyn.
