Amazing 4k Aerial Footage of the Sunrise Over LIC, Manhattan and the East River

Aerial cinematography firm Heighten Cinematics recently created this amazing 4k video showing the sunrise over Long Island City, Roosevelt Island, Midtown Manhattan and the East River.

Was it worth it to wake up at 6AM to get these shots? You tell us. Since most people are familiar with the Manhattan skyline, we wanted to highlight the up and coming skyline of Long Island City, an area that’s becoming increasingly gentrified, like many of the boroughs of New York, for better or for worse. Do you think it’ll mirror the Manhattan skyline one day?

The music featured in the video is Lazerhawk — “So Far Away”
