A New Spin on the Video Travelogue

TurnHere is a beta site that provides "tours" of communities via short videos. Explore New York's famous East Village and Hell's Kitchen, party in South Beach, or take a "Sporanos Tour" of Northern New Jersey. Videos are organized by theme (art nouveau, foodie havens, party towns, surf's up) rather than by geography.

What makes TurnHere unique is that its videos are produced by locals who know their communities intimately. Aspiring videographers who have stories to tell about their neighborhoods are encouraged to submit their work (and get paid for it, too!)
