Amazing midtown Manhattan time-lapse

2013-08-12 12:47
Drew Geraci from District 7 Media spent six months and took over 50 000 images to accurately capture the hustle and bustle of Midtown Manhattan for his latest time lapse project. Geraci states in the description that the biggest issue was not the time it required, but the objections from city officials in the wake of the Boston bombings to his presence with a camera, particularly subway and transport workers.

"There were multiple times during this shoot that we were chased off, either by cops or the cold. The subway shots were particularly difficult to get, especially in the wake of the Boston bombings. We were led out and in some cases followed by police officers or MTA officials who seemed intent on getting us for using tripods," he explains on the Vimeo post.

Sit back, relax and let this work of patience and art take you right to the heartbeat of cosmopolitan New York city.
