New York City can be cruel and punishing, but it sure looks delightful in these pixelated GIFs from designer Nana Rausch.

Nobody likes a morning commute. But wait! In GIF form, the train looks so fun. And man, crossing the bridge during rush hour is such a pain. But animated, the busy BQE looks downright inviting. It's as though Rausch turned the city in a video game that can't be lost.


Rausch makes all kinds of pixel art under the moniker QuickHoney, but it's her New York-themed GIFs that I want to live inside of.
