A look inside the philosophies of one New York native turned theater student turned tour bus guide, The Cruise follows Speed Levitch in his natural habitat. Consider yourself a tourist along for the ride, but look no further than the century old brick buildings and double-wide streets and you’ll begin to see what the cruise is all about. Cruising is a lifestyle, a way of being that allows for endless observation and questioning of the world around you, zooming out and putting things in and out of perspective. Speed Levitch is all that Woody Allen could ever hope to be in characterizing New York City, but more sincere.
“…IF THE CRUISE IS ANYTHING, BE IT APPRECIATION, BE IT A VOYAGE, BE IT AN ADVENTURE THAT LEADS BACK TO OURSELVES, BE IT A CARTWHEEL OR A SOMERSAULT, IF YOU FIND THE CRUISE IN A PIECE OF CARROT CAKE, IF YOU FIND THE CRUISE IN A TOPLESS BAR, THE ONE THING THE CRUISE ALWAYS IS, I THINK, IS SINCERE.” –SPEED LEVITCH
