A layered portrait of Timothy "Speed" Levitch and his tempestuous love affair with New York City. Atop double-decker buses, his tours exhibit a peculiar intimacy with the city's architectural feats and historical and artistic lineage. Each tour he leads is another chance to initiate unsuspecting tourists into the individuality the city represents.
