Can someone please name a site for 'real' royalty free video footage?

I am looking to download royalty free video footage of People walking on Manhattan streets, I want to use it as a background for chroma keying my protagonist. I intend to use it as a dream sequence in my forthcoming short film. Any help would be appreciated. If you are based in NYC or study in NYFA and can shoot me those videos, you will be a saviour :) Thanks in Advance.

Just to confirm: You know that "royalty free" is not the same as "free" ?

i.e. You normally have to buy "royalty free" footage, but you are free to use it any way you like ( but you can't sell it ) once you have paid for it.

Thanks for the response. That's the catch, I was looking for a set up where I can download for free and credit the creator, may be like Creative Commons License, Help Please :)

Music is not an issue, I got some cool sites for that. I was looking for Video footage, anyways I downloaded couple of them which should suffice, now trying to get permission from the creators. So, Thanks Guy and James for the response.
