The New York Times have created a rather snazzy travel video of Belfast. It makes Belfast look REALLY good. I would want to visit and I live in Belfast.
I know we complain a lot, and God knows we have a lot to complain about. But sometimes it takes outsiders to show us what we have. The video is currently the second most popular on the New York Times website. The branding value of such a video is worth hundreds of thousands to Belfast. Thanks NYT 🙂
What’s your impression of the new shiny Belfast portrayed in the video? Let us know in the comments below. We are particularly interested in the views of ex-pats.
