For some, the sounds of the New York City streets are a bother—the garbage trucks, the shouting, the construction disturbing slumber or interrupting concentration. For others, like the experimental documentarian Jem Cohen, they are a symphony. In “NYC Weights and Measures,” Cohen (who has worked with Fugazi, R.E.M, and Elliott Smith) profiles the city in sound, with street-level and underground footage of bustling, noisy life here, from a ticker-tape parade to the subway.
