This was always one of my favorite New York videos, despite the recording artists' utter lack of street-cred and totally random connection between city and song. How I miss the Coke/Suntory Times Square! I'm assuming that narrow building the one in the Meatpacking district you mentioned (now Vento). Though the city appears fairly unchanged here, those details you pointed out make one realize how much time has actually passed — something which is made all the more real when you consider this video was shot at a time when Posh & Becks had barely exchanged phone numbers.

Last days of neon in Times Square and Gaseteria on Houston Street.
