Gorgeous Aerial Video Shows Staten Island Like You've Never Seen It Before

Native Staten Islander and videographer Matthew Chirico recently released this great aerial video showing the beauty of his borough from above. Spending over 8 months in location scouting, shooting, and editing the video, Chirico put together a lengthy four-minute video with gorgeous footage from his DJI Mavic Pro quadcopter camera.

Living on Staten Island for 24 years has given me some insight into the so-called “Forgotten Borough”. Staten Island, actually, is the Borough of Parks. More than one-third of its landmass is protected parkland, so there are plenty of hiking trails, scenic bike paths, wild deer, hundreds of species of birds, miles of beach, and just good ole’ peace and quiet to be found, along with beautiful architecture, lakes and hidden gems. So visit Staten Island and see what it’s all about!
