Drones This Way on Bay
It’s the middle of February and we’re all just waiting for summer. Today, we give you this drone film by Johnny Drone, which is a litle taste of summer on Staten Island’s shores. Shot in New Dorp and Midland Beaches, features the fishing pier and views of the Verrazano Bridge. We’ve got a couple of months to go, but the glow of the YouTube video should keep you warm in the meantime.
Shot by Scott Grella of Hippo.TV, the above video features a beautiful bird’s eye view of Staten Island’s Greenbelt as well as some informative tidbits about the parkland. Along with being able to check out our favorite federal reserve from above, in the video you can also see the Manhattan skyline and meet one of Staten Island’s treasured deer.
Drone photographer Johnny Drone was sure to document these historic totals from the air. Like the rest of his videos, the footage in the video above is beautiful. In this video you’ll see aerial views of a snowy Silver Lake Park among other gorgeous shots.
Staten Island drone pilot, UnitedWeFlyGuy, has released another video on his YouTube channel. This DGI Phantom footage shows some of the tugboats, birds, and life off of the Kill Van Kull.
Yesterday, NJ.com posted a video on their YouTube channel featuring a whole lot of the Bay’s seafaring population. Through drone and underwater footage, we’re introduced to more fish than you’ve probably seen in one place your entire life.
We’ve shared kayak footage of the famed Arthur Kill Ship Graveyard, which is interesting, but today we’ve got drone footage of the open-air time capsule. Thanks to the Jersey Drone YouTube channel, whose main title screen reminds me a little of something that I can’t put my finger on, we can see it from the air.
Staten Island drone enthusiast, Johnny Drone, is back with another great video shot with his DGI Phantom III. This clip, shot off the coast of South Beach takes us on a flyover of what Johnny refers to as “a mystery island” We get some beautiful shots of the island, which is actually Hoffman Island, featuring the Verrazano Bridge in the background.
We’re seeing more and more video lately, of Staten Islanders taking their drones up on the island, giving us views that we’ve never been tall enough to take in. For this trip, YouTuber, InvincibleDon1, takes us on a tour of the air above the Staten Island Ferry Terminal in St. George. You get some pretty great visuals of the Verrazano Bridge, Richmond County Ballpark, and the Manhattan skyline from that area.
Back in May we posted some cool video of a drone flying over Staten Island infamous ship graveyard and you guys seemed to really enjoy it. Well, fans of that video will be excited to learn that the people at 50/50 Skatepark decided to show their point of view, which happened to be from a GoPro on a kayak, on YouTube.
If you’ve been curious what it might be like to ride on board the planned New York Wheel, you’re in luck. Youtuber, Scott Grella, sent a drone up in the location where the “observation wheel” will be constructed in the near future.
