Two Amazing New York Videos That Capture the Energy of the City
Time-lapse videos are a great way to capture the energy of cities, especially New York City. Feel the life of NYC pulsating 24 hours a day in both "Midtown" and "NYC – Mindrelic." We hope you enjoy these 2 amazing videos. And better yet, you'll want to experience the city for yourself!
"Midtown New York City"
Push play. Immediately, the momentum of the music builds in direct proportion with racing cars and hurried people, in what is a time-lapse video called "Midtown New York City."
Intense, just as you'd imagine NYC to be, Drew Geraci of District 7 Media, captures yellow taxis speeding through Times Square, the hustle and bustle of subway life, and people scattering through Grand Central Station. The intensity is softened by calm waterways that surround the city and lush grass in Central Park.
Time keeps on rolling. The sun sets, and skyscrapers shine brilliantly in the night. From a distance, the Empire State Building closes the show. Just as it should.
NYC – Mindrelic Timelapse
The million-dollar view of the Manhattan skyline from the Hudson River anchors Josh Owens' video, NYC – Mindrelic Timelapse.
But maybe you can't put a price on iconic views. The Statue of Liberty standing proud in the distance opens Owens' magical time-lapse video. Other famous landmarks make solid appearances, such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Times Square, and the Charging Bull on Wall Street. They are the only constant things in the sea of change. Tons of people and cars rapidly pass by, simply extras in a real-life movie.
Concrete, freeways, subways, revolving doors, taxis, cars, and boats all solidify New York City's dominance in the East.
Times Square is a bright, sparkly place at night. Empire State Building is, too. In contrast and from a distance, the city twinkles in the distance as the Hudson rolls by.
