101 – Midnight Marauder from ARTE New York Minute on Vimeo.

ARTE has released the first of 6 video shorts in a series called “New York Minute” that shows a portion of what life is like in New York City. The first video here, Midnight Marauder, follows a couple of CD peddlers in Times Square and asks them how they feel about a fatal shooting of a fellow music artist named Ready in Times Square in December 2009. Check out the video above for some insight into the lives of these folks who are staples of the Times Square environment. You can’t miss ‘em!
