Above New York: Aerial View of Long Island City, Queens (Part 1)

Explore the northern part of Long Island City from a birds-eye view in this latest aerial video from our Above New York series.

This Queens neighborhood is bordered by Astoria to the north, Sunnyside to the east, the Queensboro Bridge and East River to the west, and Brooklyn to the south. Once an industrial neighborhood, much of Long Island City has been developed into fancy condos boasting magnificent views of the Manhattan skyline.

See all of the northmost part of the neighborhood in this stunning aerial video, along with visual landmarks such as Silvercup Studios, the Citi Building at One Court Square, the Queensboro Bridge, and Sunnyside Yards.

The music featured in the video is from Panthurr — “I Love U (pt. 2)”
