The video above is the new commercial to spur on tourists to visit New York City. In my opinion, it’s just great! Sure, it couldn’t represent a more typical view of NYC, but at least it does so in a very visually appealing way. I have a feeling this might work very well with the demographic it should affect — those that do not live in NYC.

Check out the very colorful computer backgrounds you can download (there are 4 at the moment) and the NYC manifesto below. I swear, if they ever print this on a telephone booth ad, I’m stealing it.

Anyway, if you’re going to be visiting New York in the future, maybe the NYCvisit.com website will be of some resource to you.
