Drone Footage Captures Stunning Aerial Views of New York City

Apr 16, 2014

Sometimes the best way to appreciate New York City's majestic beauty is to take a step back and observe it from afar -- or from up high. This aerial footage captured by photographer Randy Scott Slavin, with the help of a drone, lets you explore the city's busy streets and glittering skyscrapers on a sunny day. It makes you feel like you're a bird, or like you have a magic carpet or something.

Plus, the city seems so much cleaner and less smelly from this perspective.
