Urban Eye Candy: Best City Time Lapse Videos

Eric Jaffe at Atlantic Cities assembles his collection of the best time lapse videos of cities.

The compelling and fun-to-watch time lapse videos are from the cities of New York, Barcelona, Abu Dhabi, Washington, D.C., Bangkok, Paris, Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Los Angeles, Seoul, and from Burning Man.

One example from the list: "This video of the capital of United Arab Emirates garnered a good deal of attention upon its release earlier this year. It was created from more than 21,000 photos shot over eight weeks. One glowing review, on Arabia MSN Business, called it a recognition of the 'magnificent transformations the Emirate has instigated and witnessed in only a few decades.'"
