New York is a big city, and the sheer size of it can be overwhelming for anyone. Now imagine what it feels like if you are a little person.

Jonathan Novick, 22, has achondroplasia, the most common form of dwarfism.

Sharing a definition of dwarfism, Novick says it is "the abnormal underdevelopment of the body characterized predominantly by extreme shortness of stature." He adds, "The term is dwarf or little person, one or the other is totally fine — just not midget … not only is that incorrect, but it’s incredibly offensive."

Novick came to New York City about a year ago. He made a short film about his experience and posted it to YouTube on Aug. 7. In less than a week, it’s racked up more than 69,000 views.

He wanted to share this video so that instead of telling people about his condition and his life, he could start showing them.
