Local718 Video Shorts

Queens is home to many amazing people and places. With inspiration from our diverse community, Local718 put together a video series capturing the spirit of Queens. The videos will be short profiles of individuals that are making their mark in the neighborhood.

All video shorts (unless otherwise noted) are conceived, shot, produced and edited by C. Smith.
