[WATCH] Amazing Drone Capture Over the Verrazano Bridge at Dusk

Local aerial videographer Chanuka Hewavitharana shot this amazing aerial video over the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge at dusk using his DJI Phantom 3 quadcopter.

When it opened in 1964, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge was the world's longest suspension span. The ends of the bridge are at historic Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn and Fort Wadsworth in Staten Island, both of which guarded New York Harbor at the Narrows for over a century. The bridge was named after Giovanni da Verrazano, who, in 1524, was the first European explorer to sail into New York Harbor.
