Time Lapse Video of the Manhattan Bridge Flexing With the Weight of Traffic

Stock footage video creator James Orlowski of Orlowski Designs recently uploaded this seemingly mundane stock footage to YouTube.

The video is a time-lapse of the Manhattan Bridge as seen from Dumbo, a shot which has been captured time and time again.

While it may look like a boring video at first glance, but pay close attention to the right side of the bridge, and how much the bridge deck flexes as traffic passes over it. Scary!
