On the street Manhattan can feel like an endless flow of pedestrians. But there are patterns within the madness. The folks at Dark Horse Analytics have animated the flow of people in Manhattan over 24 hours and the results are pretty mesmerizing.

“I wondered if I could make a breathing city,” Joey Cherdarchuk writes on his blog. “Manhattan looks somewhat lung-like, so it seemed natural. Should be a fun, quick project. How naive I was.”
