Woody Allen, one of the poster children of New York made a wonderful clip shortly following 9/11 for the "Concert for New York." The clip runs a mere 3 minutes but does a wonderful job of capturing the amazing characters that only exist in New York. Our favorite line: "I got mugged. I was coming home from the opera. They took my gas mask, my flashlight, all my Cipro." Doesn't the anthrax/herpes guy look like the head of the Others on Lost?
Update: It appears the powers that be have removed this video from YouTube.
