BREATHER

Who's behind this?

We’re Breather, a network of beautiful, inspiring workspaces located in cities throughout the US and around the world.

Why did you do this?

Sounds of New York is our tribute to a city we love. We spent months capturing the buzz and energy of New York City's neighborhoods and present it to you as ambient noise to help you focus while you work

What is it exactly?

It’s ambient noise for you to play in the background while you’re working. We just happened to curate these particular background sounds from famous locations throughout NYC neighborhoods.

How?

First we mapped out our favorite places in NYC, neighborhood by neighborhood. Then, armed with our recording equipment, we went and recorded the daily bustle of the delis, comedy venues, restaurants, parks, concert halls, markets, subway stations, and everything else the city had to offer us.

You missed some neighborhoods...

We’re working on it!
