NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Not only does New York City look different amid the coronavirus pandemic, it also sounds different.
For those longing for the day when the world can return back to some semblance of normalcy, the New York Public Library is out with its Missing Sounds of New York soundtrack to help fill your life with something familiar.
"Missing Sounds of New York reminds us of what makes New York so special for so many people," the library said in a press release. "The experience is a collection of audio landscapes that evoke the sounds of New York City as we know it, and transports listeners to the daily urban orchestra they look forward to hearing again soon."
The comforting sounds of cabs honking in midtown rush hour traffic, busy subways and even cheering New York baseball crowds are now all available for your listening pleasure on the library's website.
“This album is a different and creative way we can help: providing an entertaining distraction that allows New Yorkers access to something we are all missing: many of the quintessential sounds of the city we know and love,” said Carrie Welch, the Library’s chief of external relations.
