"A local riff on the drone travel-video craze renders New York City’s roads, bridges, lighthouses, elevated trains, waterways, amusement-park rides, and of course buildings from all sorts of dizzying perspectives. The photographer, Victor Chu of the Bronx, said he was prompted by videos that focused only on Manhattan to make one that takes in the whole city."

"Bronx-based photographer Victor Chu spent the last six months on an ambitious project: documenting landmarks in all five boroughs of New York City with a camera and aerial drone. His recently completed short video, made from 10 hours of tape shot over the past six months, is Chu's tribute to the city where he's lived most of his life."

"Sometimes it takes a bit of perspective to stop and appreciate the beauty world around you. That’s certainly true of this video by Victor Chu (Sky Tech One), which features stunning shots from above of New York’s five boroughs (yes, even Staten Island), giving the city that has seemingly been shot from every possible angle already a fresh new spin."

"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."

"For years, we didn't think any video tribute to New York City could match the one at the beginning of the classic Woody Allen film Manhattan, in which beautiful black-and-white footage taken throughout the city rolls by accompanied by Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue. Now, however, a new video of New York City's five boroughs that was filmed using aerial drones has caused us to reconsider our thinking."

"This is travel inspiration at its best. Appropriately, we journey into Manhattan via the Queensboro – or the tramway, with a shot of the abandoned Roosevelt Island Smallpox Hospital."

"Its creators call it the "Ultimate Aerial Video of NYC," and we kind of agree. It's got everything, from the Staten Island boat graveyard to 5Pointz to the High Line to Chinatown to our beautiful bridges and baseball fields. You'll get iconic signage in Queens, hospital ruins on Roosevelt Island, and coasters in Coney Island—they didn't leave one borough out."

"Okay, so drone tours are hardly a realistic way to experience life — too remote, too escapist — but this recent video form Sky Tech One Aerial Photography is a perfect example of the genre. Especially as the addition of a dreamy, '80s synth soundtrack tips the whole thing into Grand Theft Auto trailer territory. I'm not saying it's better than real life, but it's certainly one way to get to a handle on things. Now go on: get out there and get that city."

"The Story Of Probably The Best NYC Drone Video....You’ve probably heard of the NYC legislation that pretty much bans drones in the city completely. By that time, New York photographer Victor Chu was done with the filming of his aerial drone video that covers all 5 boroughs of the city."

"Sploid loves awesome places, which is why we have a series dedicated to beautiful cities. Awesome places like New York City, which looks incredibly beautiful in Victor Chu's aerial film of the five boroughs: Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island."
