Try Not to Cry While Watching Humans of New York’s Heartwrenching First Video

Pin it

Chances are you’ve seen a photo taken by Brandon Stanton — the founder of the fascinating photo series “Humans of New York” poignantly documents moments in the lives of ordinary New Yorkers, and he’s just put out the series’ first-ever video.

Watch the video to get a glimpse into the life of Shirley Hyman, a 100-year-old New Yorker who goes on camera to reminisce about Moe, her now-deceased husband and the love of her life. “It was a meeting of the souls,” the centenarian says. Pro tip: have your tissues at the ready.
