Thank you Casey for documenting this with the drone shots, it was absolutely unreal yesterday and today's starting off to look even worse than yesterday morning did.
it's downright apocalyptic end of the world looking imo, i can't imagine how going outside and breathing would feel even by looking at pictures
There is no way the man himself thinknoodles is in the comment section
@dethronus Yesterday and afternoon it's getting weird outside and the sky turned Orange
Sorry to see this! As an Australian who has lived through a bunch of bush fire seasons sending prayers for the fire fighters putting out the fires and i also hope you all stay safe and the smoke clears soon.
happened to australia and no one gave a shit
@Joseph Spyrou yep but as soon as it happens to "The big apple" everyone cares, same with california
@Jackson Duggan Not true. People cared (and still do care) when the wildfires first broke out, but started paying even more attention when the smoke started to make its way out of Canada. It initially drifted, but reached maximum capacity once it hit NYC. It was literally the worst in the world on June 7th (and that's not even figuratively speaking) with an AQI of nearly 500 which was also the city's worst since 1966. It's incredibly rare for the Eastern and Midwest US to get that bad. Can't say the same for places like Australia, the Western US/Canada and India where it's a common occurrence. That's why it was getting the most attention.
@Hermunkulus i do agree and we should really care for all major problems in the world and collectively find ways to solve these issues to prevent them from happening.
As a northern Californian it's hilarious watching people react to this like it's the first time it's ever happened. We had a completely orange sky for almost a month straight back in 2020
Yep. I'm in Washington state and this is a common deal every summer for the last 10 years. We've had the AQI into the 400s several times.
No one said it never happened before, it’s just about the fact that this is a new thing for this region.
Same. I’m from Vancouver, Canada and we been getting smoke like this since at least 2017 every summer.
I live all the way down in Maryland, and the smoke was bad even here. Our air quality topped out at around 200, which is definitely not as bad as other regions, but still enough for me and much of my friends and family to feel the effects. Currently dealing with a nasty sinus infection as a result. I wish the best of health to all those affected
damn its just cloudy here in southern pa, i live by gettysburg and theres not really much smoke
I live in philly it was smokey ash in center city air quality reached 400
I’m in Maryland and it got over 300
Chester springs pa was bad. It got up to farther than 300 overnight.
here in Montreal Canada it had gone up to 650+ and was tough to see and smelled like a campfire everywhere, as we were pretty close
Keep safe everyone out there. Greetings from Switzerland. I am very saddened to see this and also my thoughts go the people and animals in Canada that are suffering right now from those huge wildfires. I’ve read that there are over 160 wildfires ongoing out of control and local firefighters are only able to deal with 40 at a time…. Luckily many nations send firefighters to help them
Yes, American firefighters are incompetent (they're American after all). I'm also Swiss. Greetings from Zürich!
@Gerald Martsy I hear Swiss fire fighters aren’t too great either (they’re Swiss after all). Ours are pretty experienced by comparison and have more resources to use and more training and higher requirements on average, not to mention the frequent request of our fire assistance in other countries. Never heard of anyone asking for Swiss firefighters. I’d say stick with banking but you Swiss can’t even do that right anymore. So I think we and the aussies will take this one, Gerry. Greetings from California!
@Gerald Martsy 🤦♂️ the fires are in Canada. Truly an America moment!
Sorry from Canada. :( We've been dealing with this every summer for the last six years and it's no fun. I wrote my master's thesis when the air quality in my city actually was the worst in the country and it was awful. No reprieve because you couldn't go outside, couldn't open windows. I taped furnace filters to the back of box fans and they would turn black in a couple days. I hope it passes quickly for you. We've been getting a lot of rain out west, hopefully it heads that way too.
im also in Canada and the air quality was bad here for a few days. Thankfully it's done now but I know theres many many Canadians who are struggling because of this, may they find relief soon. Praying for them.
low quality air, high quality vlog
Wipe your mouth when you done
@Kane Pictures fr
mans is always here like I am 😭😂
I live 45 min from the fires in northern Ontario .Evacuation in the neighbouring communities is about to begin, it’s a scary time for all. I hope everyone stays safe and doesn’t lose anything.Awesome video as always!
fearporn & propaganda to hate on USA
@SkreltNL tf u talking about
@SkreltNL rather have wildfires than mass shootings everyday
Maybe listed as “the worst” but it’s coming from wild fires that will stop at some point. Traveling to cities like Kathmandu and others in Asia..it’s just their daily life. I was there for 3 weeks, and it hung in the air every day. Thanks for sharing the great shots of NYC and what’s happening there now, I hope for all of us we can find a way to keep our air and water clean-
It’ll be more common for cities like NY
Thank you, Casey. I appreciate this. My wife and I had scratchy throats for three days in NJ. Our chickens, which have sensitive lungs, are doing fine.
The issue lies in the fact that these climates have traditionally been wet during this time of year. Over generations, people have developed certain negligent habits such as burning debris, setting up campfires, and clearing land, particularly in the early spring season. However, considering the shifting climate, it is imperative that these attitudes are altered to avoid the current consequences.
I remember 2021 in the Willamette valley in Oregon it was so bad with wildfire smoke you couldn't see more than 10 feet at times. Another thing I remember was the sun, because it was such dense smoke it was only light out for a few hours a day when it was directly above and the outline of the sun was a rich red. Also overtime people became more and more exhausted from a many factors from less oxygen and not being able to get oxygen into the body because carbon monoxide. One last thing was I remember that super vibrant orange that's in the video. Good luck New York your going to need it.
hard to express what it was like today. it would be bright organge then just regular smokey. eyes itch. vulernable people (those w respiratory issues) were asked to stay home. scary stuff. almost apocolyptic
Sending love all the way from Philippines❤
You will make it thru it
Oof, feeling the same in Canada, Sorry
DC was similar, just dialed down. Crazy stuff.
Those of us from San Fran know what this is like unfortunately
Casey's editing never dissapoints, what a master. I'm also here in NYC, I was out skating to get to a meeting but tried to limit my exposure. Absolutely wild
I went to NYC for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I was looking for you but wasn’t able to see you riding around town. I wanna go back soon I loved the vibe of a huge city. The cultural diversity there is amazing ,and I love to see so many different people from different walks of life appreciate the amazing city of NYC. Love you Casey hope I see you next time.
Here in southern Germany we've had bad air like this. Everything turned orange for a couple of days, not because of any wildfires or anything, but because of Sahara wind blowing sand all across Europe. And while I haven't been at a smoky bar (yet), I do know that feeling that caseys trying to explain, that you get in your esophagus from breathing in polluted air. As an "honorary" or ex-New Yorker myself, I'm hoping this all clears up soon...
Casey (or anyone in NYC), do you notice how much the air quality changes your fitness whilst running/cycling? I know a lot of folks run in NYC but it doesn't really strike me as a good place to do so.
Thanks for your solidarity Casey. A lot of New Yorkers don't realize but what they're facing now with their air quality is the reality for many Canadians during the warmer months of the year. Last month my father and brother were evacuated from their home in Western Canada due to uncontrolled wildfires, luckily they had somewhere to stay. Some families aren't so lucky, furthermore Canada is so vast and we have such a small population that when these fires start we lack the man power to keep them in control, we often have to get firefighters from other countries flown in to help. Keep us in your prayers ya'll.
It’s not the same thing kid this is the highest AGI ever.
@Vripper and guess where its coming from. Canada ;D
U serious? There aren’t enough firefighters?What’s the reason? I’d love to come and help… seen in the long term vision… greetings from Germany
@Andreas H fire season this year is BADDD we have fires in BC quebec and albeta all at the same time, normally its more spread out, but because of the heat wave the past few weeks all our forest are much more flammable. because theres so many going at the same time the limited firefighter force in canada cant adress them all to the extent that would be ideal. we are getting help from american fire fighters as well as others from a multitude of contries tho! so very thankful for that
This vlog was high quality as always but I just wanted to say that the title is more than a bit of an exaggeration. There are so many cities, especially in countries in Asia that deal with smog like this everyday and although NYC is going through it right now, there are many people to whom smog, dust, exhaust are all right outside their bedrooms each day. Not trying to detract from the situation, but appreciate what great air we get normally! It's an invaluable human right.
I get that the air's bad in NYC, but as Casey has at the end of the video I hope we can spare a thought for the Canadians who are suffering mortal danger due to not just smoke, but literally burning to death / having all their earthly belongings destroyed.
Thank you ! Finally someone that realizes 🇨🇦
As someone who lives in sydney australia and has been in way worse smoke haze than this.... i understand all the cons that come with these events... terrible to see is happen around the world.
Very familiar with this. Stay inside as much as possible, use air purifiers and humidifiers. Use masks when heading out doors, limit strenuous activities outside and stay hydrated. Good luck to you all and hoping rain is headed your way.
love how you document everything. hopefully in the future i can show this to my future kids or grandkids.
You can show it to them in their refugee bunkers when the western world has crumbled due to climate apocalypse
You should visit Delhi in December. Mask up Casey breathing this can damage your lungs
Lmao a Delhi guy will breathe freely in this
@Black not really it’s not like smog. It is making it difficult to breathe.Eh who am I kidding. This is nothing lol
It's only during November when there is stubble burning by farmers in Punjab and Haryana.
@Harkirat Singh so once stubble burning season ends, for the rest of the winter, Delhi air is clean? Why does Mumbai, Kolkata have poor aqi in winters? Stubble burning?
Big shout out to all the Hot shot wild land fire fighter crews out there fighting these fires. These dudes have balls of steel and usually never get the recognition, or the funding they need.One of the most dangerous and laborious jobs in the world.
I was in Oregon in 2017 and 2018, I remember the wildfires during the summer, the smoke was so thick and inhaling it during a month & a half was painful. I spit blood because of it and I am not even a smoker. I can't imagine having that in NYC, which is even more polluted.
I live in BC, Canada. Every summer for as long as I can remember, the sky looks like this or worse a couple times. They rate air quality on a scale of 1-10, my hometown was once rated at 42!! I remember notice for children and seniors to stay inside, and for adults to only go out for necessary errands or work. All sports and outdoor activity was cancelled and strongly advised against personal exercise. It’s a real problem up here with wildfires 😣
Simple but great video to show what’s happening in NYC. All the news station in the world would probably been going on for day’s about this but Casey says it in a few minutes with great effect.
I know someone who moved to Canada a few years ago. The second I heard about the fires, I messaged her to make sure everyone is all good. Glad she is but I hope everyone else is safe.
Insane. thanks for documenting from your POV. BUT, Hope it was a good shot for Ghostbusters!!!
hope it wasnt lol, the corrupt industry needs more lessons it cant profit badly off exploitation thats helping to cause these very fires.
HI JUDY 😍
@Lind Morn wrong industry bud. Of everything the film industry is probably the least horrible offender
@Lind Morngo after oil industry instead, leave Hollywood alone
I live in a state around new york, and one day I checked the air quality index was 303 in Manhattan and then next day it was over 400 where I lived. It was crazy because the sky looked as if it was cloudy but you couldn't see any clouds, along with this there was also a smoky smell outside.
I'm in Lancaster County, PA, and our PM2.5 air quality index yesterday was at 457 (out of 500)---the actual worst levels across the northeast. NYC got to around 413. 😢 Thankfully it's starting to clear now.
I live on long island and when I got out of school it was so yellow out and you could smell the smoke. Just glad nobody with health issues were harmed.Thanks for sharing these cool drone shots for this historic day.
Newyork is such a magical place. Imagine moving randomly around the city and finding out that they're filming an upcoming movie and seeing some of the actors. Nice vlog @caisey neistat as always
Before moving to NYC I thought it was over hyped how much you actually see people here.But then I moved here and literally see people/filming all the time it’s wild.
This happens in the town I live next to called brantford Ontario lol, they filmed silent hill on the same street I lived on, same with the handmaids tale and that anti-superhero show The Boys
I met Matt Damon in high school because he was filming on my block (in NYC). He actually remembered my name the next day. I've met a bunch of others as well though it only happened once in a while. There is always something to see/do though.
Holy cow I live in Maryland it was smokey here but thank gosh it wasn't to bad. I pray for you guys hope everything is okay I have a friend from New York glad she came here during this time pray for you and your family.
Well that didn't take long at all to get this vlog out! Hope the air clears up for all of you down there! On behalf of Canada "We're Sorry"
A Japanese channel who’s Canada based commenting on a New York Casey Neistat Clip-Share video.. 😂 What is it ? A crossover episode
Im sorry you guys have wild fires ❤😢
@Tom Coustols I live in Canada and am Canadian. I lived in Japan for quite a long time though.
@Evan Cops thanks!
@A Japanese Dream where are you from in Canada
On a positive note. The vegetation that sprouts after the fire is beautiful and plentiful. I’m from Canada and it’s a little scary but I think the earth is doing what it does. A small reset in vegetation
We live near Seattle and in 2018 wildfire smoke made our air quality similar to your video. My wife, who is a professional flutist with no breathing problem history, suddenly came down with acute asthma and had to be hospitalized for three days. It took nearly a year for her to get off prescription steroids and return to normal breathing. Consequently, we bought a Tesla with the only real HEPA quality air filtration available so she will be safe if we encounter bad air while travelling. We also had the best near-HEPA air filtration system we could find installed on our home HVAC system to provide safe air at home. Our efforts have been successful while enduring subsequent wildfire seasons including one day last year when Seattle had the worst air quality on the planet. I hope others are able to protect themselves from these intensely toxic air quality episodes that can quickly emerge nearly anywhere.
I live in the west and had to deal with this for 3 years straight. Northern California is known to burn quite often. 3 years ago, it got to the point of smothering the entire Western US. Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, New Mexico, Colorado. All I can say is, Welcome to the club, Casey! Haha. Stay safe out there.
As a lot valet in South Jersey, I walk around all day getting cars for customers and such. Each time I stepped outside though, I couldn't help but notice a burning sensation in my nostrils and terrible headache. The air quality has been terrible for awhile down here form the forest fire earlier in the month...
In 2020 in Australia the air was like this for months over the summer bushfires .Canadian fire-fighters came to help us now Australian fire-fighters are in Canada 🇨🇦 🇦🇺❤🙏
Thank you, Australia! 🇨🇦❤🇦🇺
We ain’t shit (humans)
As a Canadian who was living in Aus during the bushfires I honestly had never experienced something like it. Literally swept ash off my balcony daily. I even flew to New Zealand a whole year later and on the glacier there was ash coating it turning it black for the first time ever in the guides 20+ history. Not trying to take anything away from NYC experience just recalling just how messed up it was. Dig out those covid masks and limit your exposure! Be safe NYC and all others affected
this world is going nuts
Met some wonderful Aussies from New South Wales while working on the wildfires in Alberta. I traded some patches with them they were all so nice!!
Having lived in Norhtern Thailand, this is how the air looks like roughly 4 months of the year. Every day (except if a rare rain storm comes in). Wearing a mask is pretty much mandatory and every household should have at least one air purifier in their house. Same reason, wildfires
In oregon the sky turned dark red
I didn’t know this about Thailand. This is sad and shocking. Is your country having wildfires every year……
that’s not wildfires, those fires are set by farmers on purpose - mostly is coming from neighboring countries like myanmar, cambodia
Love to everyone going through it. Stay safe and I hope it passes soon for you all ❤️❤️❤️
This happeneds every year here in Medford Oregon, sending love and prayers to all the firefighters that are battling these wild fires
I'm in eastern Canada and apreaciate your message of solidarity with those affected. At this time of year we normally have no more than 30 fires. As of the time this video aired, the count was147.
You from India right?
Seeing your high quality drone shots, I'm like playing video games in that environment. Also thanks for getting us to see Ghostbuster 2 scene.
I live in southern Ontario and it smells like a campfire outside every day. This has never happened before, very concerning. Thank you to all the firefighters that are battling the many wildfires in our Country. And thank you to America for sending a lot of them to aid us in doing so.
Fr it smells like i'm Camping but at home, super weird. Hopefully the fires don't reach the GTA...
WOW VERY DANGEROUS! I WILL NEVER GO TO USA!! 😠 BUT SIR MY INDIA IS THE REAL SUPERPOWER 🤗🇮🇳 WE HAVE THE BEST INFRASTRUCTURE AND HIGHSPEED RAIL 🤗🇮🇳 THIS WHY IM SO LUCKY LIVE IN SUPER INDIA THE CLEANEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD 🇮🇳🤗 , WE NEVER SCAM! WE GIVE RESPECT TO ALL WOMEN THEY CAN WALK SAFELY ALONE AT NIGHT AND WE HAVE CLEAN FOOD AND TOILET EVERYWHERE 🇮🇳🤗🚽, I KNOW MANY POOR PEOPLE JEALOUS WITH SUPER RICH INDIA 🤗🇮🇳🤗🇮🇳🤗🇮🇳🤗🇮🇳
obviously you've never been to BC then. It's a yearly thing
@INDIA SUPER CLEAN 🇮🇳 haha what?
A few years ago a giant slaughterhouse in my home town burned down. It was advised to close all windows and stay indoors. It looked like a scene from a hell on earth movie scenario. The Clouds were pure black as far as the horizon. In the middle of the day it looked like weird eclipse lighting.
that sounds amazing
Where was this?
@Ben Paderborn, Germany
@Ben Type "Paderborn Westfleisch Brand" into google
When I was driving up to northern Alberta, I hit a massive wall of smoke and it was incredibly thick. It flared up a couple of times in 3 days
You always responded well to apocalypse! Striking images and flying shots. We have a glimpse of what it feels like to live on Mars!
Those drone shots are incredible! Shitty situation to be in, but I appreciate the work that went into creating this video 👊🏾👊🏾👊🏾
I lived in Southern California back in 2019 and I had never experienced a wildfire before I was living 3 towns over and the smoke from the wildfires made it hard to see and there was ash covering the entire outside patio of my house. Thankfully I don’t live in California anymore.
Didn’t know that NYC was somehow in mexico this summer
Were they just shooting an episode of Breaking Bad?
you mean the hollywood stereotype mexico filter?
Poor quality joke
@Roman Rac its fire
There is something about watching daily life continue, in spite of the situation that's oddly chilling to me. That bright green powerboat on the water, it just made it feel like we'll probably distract ourselves until the final nail is driven in. Perhaps we should. Reminiscent of Australia in 2019/2020, where I still had to get into work on my bike, I was wearing bandanas to not feel like I was breathing in ash, but it does nothing for PM2.5 that harms you. My heart goes out to those of us having to live in cities where air gets this bad frequently, just due to general pollution.
It’s not that deep, have you seen the rent in ny? they have to make that money
The saddleworth moors fires in the UK a couple of years ago was the same. My partner woke me up to the site of the hillside blazing from our bedroom window. Felt like the apocolypse mixed with a public house snooker room in the 90s.
It’s sad but this is standard in Australia during bushfire season. We lived with smoke like that for sometimes weeks on end. Gets in everything! Hope it clears for you guys soon 🙏
I live in Ohio and was wondering why I started getting air quality alerts everyday. I don’t know how this is my first time hearing about the wildfires in Canada.
only in ohio?
As a Canadian who has been through a few summers of wildfires, I see people at risk in terms of their health. They really should be investing in air filtering masks and should be staying inside, not out, no matter how much New York never sleeps. Three days minimum. My heart goes out to everyone affected.
Thx. I agree. I went out today. Like an idiot. It was awful.
Who started the fires???
As a Australian who has been through most summers in a bush fires you get used to it and becomes a habit you can feel it in your throat and in the heat
Same. I pray that everyone affected by the wildfire remains safe and secure. At the same time, please pray for us here in Bangladesh. We've experiencing severe heatwaves over the last few weeks, and some people have died because of it. Plus, we're having frequent power failures, due to a scarcity of coal and economic problems, which is really exacerbating the whole problem.
As someone who grew up in California, its getting worse as well here. It is nerve racking but it is not permanent. It will pass. Stay safe everyone.
I’m impressed your drone found its way back to you! Great vlog. Seeing you just come on to that gum set was wild
Gets an air quality alert which advises to stay indoor, close windows, and not exercise. Casey immediately opens a window and then goes outside to ride a bike 😝
As a content creator, Casey Neistat is one of my favorite creators and he inspires me a lot.
can we all take a second and appreciate how this man found out about what was going on and then filmed, edited and posted this video in like 7 hours.
just like the good ol' days
I'd have done it in 6, wait no i wouldnt have done it cause of morality... i would porabbaly have done it
I don't live very far away and I've been seeing those alerts since Monday night
I thought our state’s fire season was bad in the Rocky Mountains but AQI of 326 in NYC right now is off the charts. Prayers for quick relief and safety NYC friends❤
Eastern Canada has been terrible. West Coast we've had some, but some are more controlled and others are not. :( . Just want to say brilliant filming on this vlog. Really top notch Casey for this one.
Western Canada has been way worse weve been evacuated three times and there's flames 1km from the town I'm from rn...
@codypendency Yeah where I live an hour each way have been super bad -- but they are put back under control at the moment. The stupidity of seeing a lot of them have been man-made on the island I live is what is so angering. On top of that, seeing cigarettes improperly put out. 1 why do people even still smoke and 2. why not see fires. Total crap.
As a Canadian you don't realize just what can get affected in other places, wishing all the best through the smoky time
This is insane. The smoke AND that you captured the shooting of Ghostbusters 2 action sequence in NYC with the actual ECTO-1... I had no idea they were already filming!
I was just wondering at the start of the video how that would affect any movie/tv filming lol.Although technically, isn’t that ghostbusters 4?
A few days ago I was in Duluth, MN and we were in the epicenter of the potent stuff for part of a day. I could not see Lake Superior from the window. Lake Superior was 1 block away. It was unreal and had an eerie feeling.
As a Canadian, this is just how it's been the last few years and it's been getting worse and worse. I'm sorry it's affecting you guys down there, but I am very grateful for the increased awareness due to this. I wish we would stop just brushing this aside as if it were nothing. Imagine if we started addressing this when we first found out this was going to be such an issue?...
@YoTuBe110 Yes in Chilliwack (outside Vancouver) we spent two summers around 2017 with most of the summer this way. Could barely send the kids outside for months.
how long has it been a problem?! We've known about the smoke drift (i'm on the east coast) and fires in California for several years, but I had NO idea that Canada was dealing with a huge amount of wildfires too.
@Curtis McHale Whoa living in this today was horrible, can't imagine 2 summers in a row of it. I hope for heavy long rains or something
Nothing we can do at this point, it’s man made fires. It’s out of any Canadian or nyc citizens hands at this point. Even in California I’ve spoken to people who are skeptical about the fires over there as well. That’s just my theory, I could be wrong. Love Canadians by the way but stop blaming it on yourselves you guys are helping on bringing awareness to this as much as you can! Love ❤️
Smart guy with the mask. N95s or those masks with filters help so much. Here in NorCal I use them during Smokey fire season because otherwise over time you will develop a dry cough that’s insanely terrible. Stay safe out there if you live nearby. 😊
The wildfires here in Alberta were so bad. Couldn’t open any windows or you wouldn’t be able to breathe. Had to wear an n95 mask. Was like that until we finally got rain after 3 weeks. It was starting to feel like this is what our summer will be after the usual horribly cold winter.
Out West we feel for you, really. We go through this almost every year.
Wish people would care and give this much attention to the north west when this literally happens every year now. Hope yall stay safe out there and keep an eye on your pets please!
I live in B.C Canada. We go through this every year. It is terrible and so sorry it has come down your way from Ontario. Hopefully winds shift and let it pass soon. Stay inside an or wear a respirator. May not feel like anything at first but can have major long term health issues. Stay Safe!
It is horrific. Sending hope from New Zealand to you all, along with 45 of our firefighters to Alberta, Canada. Stay inside, New Yorkers
Yeah I actually met some firefighters from New South Wales while working on the wildfires in Alberta! You were all so nice! Australia and New Zealand are always welcomed to Canada in my book.
And i still went to school.
I’m from NZ too 👋
This smoke is from Quebec
Repent to Jesus Christ “Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.”Romans 10:17 NIVT
I’m sure Casey has done color grading to make a presentable video, but that color is the real deal. I was absolutely freaked out when I came out around 2 to see nothing but yellow everywhere.
I was there for a day during this, it was super bad. It hurt to breathe in some places, the sun was dimmer than a lightbulb, and you could barely see the one side of the East River from the other shore.
The thing that intrigues me the most is how there are wildfires there? It didn't get that hot yet for a fire to spark out of nothing. It's bizarre to me.
Damn, New York comes with a mexico filter now. All jokes aside I feel for the people affected by the wildfires, this is a terrible situation and must be an absolute nightmare for the people living in those areas.
Imagine going to New York for the first time having booked a sight seeing cruise and this is what it looks like when you show up.
Hoping it clears up quickly for y’all. We’ve been dealing with this for at least a portion of every summer since around 2016 in the Pacific Northwest. It’s hard to convey how awful it is until you experience it. Hope and pray that we actually take action to combat this kind of thing bc it’s miserable to go through
Unfortunately, I would expect this to only get worse in the coming years. This is what climate change looks like.
@Tomáš Chlebek hahhahahaha
Well I’m also in the PNW and fire season happens every…single…year. It’s going to happen this year, and it’s been happening way before 2016 lol. Y’all need to sack up, it’s not that bad unless you’re in the path.
@Zak Edwards silly little boy
I'm in Ontario and it's not really orange like down in NYC but it's definitely hazy like that and smells like bonfire out here but thankfully we're a few hours away from the fires in Ontario. We just FINALLY got some rain so HOPEFULLY that helps🤞My brother and sis-in-law are in Calgary, Alberta and they have been wearing masks outside too cuz it has been pretty bad out in Alberta as well. Poor Canada has had a rough time with fires this year. We have them in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec AND Nova Scotia.
This was a great video, the drone shots with the music. so good. the whole story of the video and how it was shot.
I work outside everyday for 8+ hours in NC and I could definitely feel the air was heavier and there was a haze everywhere you went.
I always wanted to imagine how NYC would look like if it was based in Mexico. This video perfectly shows me that.
I see who you are, you are my enemy
Even though I had a mask on, my lungs still hurt and it ended 2 days ago for me. Love to all those in Canada that are effected❤❤
hey just so you know it's "affected"
Appreciate the love to us Canadians! Sending love back. Stay safe out there
Casey has built a beautiful & timeless archive of the city over the years. Love it (Hoping everyone in NY is doing okay,stay safe folks)
I think its worse because we are so not used to have that that many fires, specially at this time of year, it rained the last couple days so hopefully the worst is behind us(for these one at least) In Quebec we usually have 5 square miles affected by fires at this time of year, So far we are at 2500 ... thats 167 905 303 acres
We had really bad wild fires here in central Florida in 1998. It was raining ash everywhere, the air was worse than that, couldn’t be outside unless you wanted to inhale camp fire and smell like a camp fire. Went on for over a month!
How do you manage to fly a drone in NYC? I always been worried about the rules banning drones in NYC.
Exactly the same as what happened in Sydney Australia during the 2019 wildfires. In the middle of the day looking at the sun was like looking at a night scene with the moon
Another amazing vlog, awesome seeing the Ecto-1, hyped for the movie when it comes out :)
As a native Northern Californian, we feel the effects of the fire season yearly. The N95's and air purifiers help.
Yes! Only difference is we had the fires only miles away from us with that bad of smoke. I was a part of the carr fire and camp fire in northern ca
I was getting a headache in California with the wildfires but then I started wearing a n95 mask and that helped tremendously.
Right I’ve seen the skies dark at 3pm with ash falling in Medford OR
I came to say the same… this is literally every late summer/fall in NorCal.
Also use a netipot or sinus rinse to flush out junk
I’m from Eastern Canada, and want to thank you for your kind words. We are sorry for all the smoke, please stay safe out there.
The work you do is a service to society and stylish as well
Watching your videos, feels like I'm watching the past but also the future at the same time
I live in eastern canada/Quebec, up north near Montreal, for two-three days there was lot of smog, the sun was red and the outside smells like campfire, it felt like unrealseeing this footage from NYC seems so unreal
Experienced this quite a few times in the four corners. Especially in Albuquerque, NM. Pretty wild to see for the first time. Especially in NYC
I’m convinced that this would be one of the videos Casey would make during the pandemic when he didn’t leave the city, the cinematography is there, the dialogue with the people is there and a straightforward context of how NYC is doing in 4 minutes, nothing short of amazing Casey
that would have been epic if Casey were in NYC making vids during the pandemic
What do you like so much about this video? I like the music. Kinda reminds me of music from elementary school in the early 90's. Which may have come from an old projector reel film made in the 70s lol
He spoke of this multiple times that he regrets not being in NYC during the pandemic to document it and express the real struggle.
I was there yesterday for the worst of it and luckily my flight out of there was not delayed at all.. thank you new LGA! Now breathing clean air in FL!
