About the Sound Effects Library

ENYC-02-sound-libraryIn this sound pack I’ve included an in- depth selection of active ambiences. This library is focused more on the natural ambience of both busy main streets and calmer side streets. Most sounds were captured below 110 St. and prominently in the Lower East and West Village. There are a multitude of police and firetruck sirens at varying distances as well as some not so common areas like the Intrepid Pier and the Hudson River Heliport ambience.

I’ve also included some extensive subway rides. All boring bits were edited out for a strong final product. There are multiple train rides with various levels of walla and PA announcements.

One thing that is very common in NYC during the summer months are the rain and thunderstorms. I’ve included a number of wet traffic, distant thunderstorms and heavy rains. All in all this is a good representation of New York streets and subway systems.
