You gotta just love the above aerial-view shot video of New York City that, in a mere two minutes, offers a remarkable overview (literally), utilizing the assistance of a drone, of the Big Apple and a real sense of its majestic beauty and vastness. Made by aerial photographer Randy Scott Slavin and perfectly synced to the soundtrack of RL Grime & What So Not's song "Tell Me" the engaging short-but-powerful video, that was published a couple of weeks ago via Vimeo, is the next best thing to taking a helicopter ride around Manhattan as it takes in such vistas as the Brooklyn Bridge, the Highline, and Washington Square Park. Speaking of visiting New York City - now and for the next month is a good time to do so before both the weather gets too hot and before prices of flights start to go up.
While the non-stop rain we have been enduring all day today here in New York City continues through tomorrow (May 1st) with an 80% chance of precipitation, come Friday sunshine and nice temps will be ushered in and forecast to remain with us in the Big Apple for most of the rest of the month of May. And that's good news since May in NY is traditionally the month when everything and everyone seems to shift from indoors to outdoors with lots of activities taking place such as the annual AIDS Walk NYC that happens on Sunday May 18th and benefits over 40 AIDS service organizations in NY, NJ, and CT and, as of today April 30th, has already raised over $2million for the cause.
