Drone Footage of Staten Island
You probably haven’t ever seen Staten Island’s iconic St. George Ferry Terminal from this perspective
By now we’ve seen the Arthur Kill Ship Graveyard from both kayak and drone, but neither of those views included much in the way of information. Today, we share a video that explains the history of the Staten Icon.
The newest clip from Staten Island drone master, UnitedWeFlyGuy, is a long one. So, throw this one up on your chromecast, pour yourself a nice glass of pinot noir, sit back, and take in the gorgeous views of Westerleigh from he sky.
The popularity of drones has increased steadily since we launched this website, and many drone videos of Staten Island have been created in that time. One location that we haven’t yet seen from the sky is Mt. Loretto. The footage shot by Paul Fargo, is accompanied by a Pink Floyd soundtrack.
Today is the first time that I’ve seen a 360 degree video that was shot on Staten Island. What’s even more exciting, is that this particular video is also a drone video. Combining their specialty for 360 degree tours, with their recent work with drone video, Black Paw Photo released the clip above, which allows users to share the view with a drone flying high above Staten Island’s Silver Lake Park.
The smart people behind the Empire Outlets YouTube channel seem to understand how much Staten Islanders like drone footage. In the clip above posted on April 13th, you can see 3.2 million pounds of steel that makes up the MTA Build-over Area, a feature that protects the St. George community protection from future Hurricane Sandy type superstorms. The flyover of the site also shows a general state of the build site from the top of a crane.
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.
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.
