Apparently, drone photography isn't just for wedding parties. For part of a series of geographic video compilations, photographer Mingomatic has edited a hypnotizing montage of drone shots of the city set to Notorious B.I.G.'s "Sky's the Limit." The smoothly cut video shows vantages that belong in the best NYC movies: pedestrians crossing through Columbus Circle on a warm day, cars zooming down bridges, and some of the city's most beautiful buildings and attractions from hundreds of feet in the air.
If you've been stressed out by the subterranean anxieties of your subway commute, or wish you could see a little more green in Manhattan, you're likely to find solace watching this video. Mingomatic has also posted a lovely drone video of Long Island, and past montages include Los Angeles and Costa Rica.
