(PIX11) — You’ll never get a view of New York City like this.
A video by Sky Tech One Aerial Photography shows what it’s like to fly through each of the five boroughs.
Director Victor Chu used a drone to capture iconic landmarks like the Brooklyn Bridge and Coney Island Ferris Wheel as well as grittier parts of the city like ship wrecks and buildings covered in graffiti–the Big Apple in its purest form.
The five-minute video begins with a quote by iconic American author F. Scott Fitzgerald.
“The city seen from the Queensboro Bridge is always the city seen for the first time, in it’s first wild promise of all the mystery and beauty in the world.”
The short film begins with a view of the Financial District, lit by One World Trade Center and the tribute lights of where the Twin Towers once stood.
After a quick jaunt through the Brooklyn Bridge, the journey begins. Aerial shots of some of the most obscure and unknown parts of the city are mixed in with some of the most visited tourist sites in the world, accompanied by a dramatic score that perfectly encompasses the overall tone of the city.
During the everyday hustle and bustle a New Yorker faces, especially with the recent freezing temperatures, gusting winds and dirty snow accumulating on the side walk, it’s easy to forget what a masterpiece our fair city truly is.
