The 3rd and 5th pics are like some good frosted flakes. Thhhheyyyyyrrree Greeeaattt!

When JC gets its supertall, the 5th scene will look even more epic. Its nice how DoBro seems to almost chain the Lower Manhattan skyline. From the right angle, both DoBro and JC look like they are all part of the same skyline mass.

Amazing landing video. Recent from early March.

Pause at 1:21 to see how much DoBro has grown.

Pause at 2:04 to be stunned and then prompt pick up your jaw from the ground.


Pause at 2:31 to get a dense view of the Upper E. Side.

I love New York and how it looks from the air, but if you look at a lot of aerial photos of large cities around the world (Sao Paulo, Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong even Paris) New York really does not look that big in comparison.

Perhaps you are just looking at Manhattan. If you view NYC as all five boroughs, including Staten Island, then it looks much bigger. Plus, NY's metro or CSA covers three states. NY, NJ and Connecticut. There's almost 22 million in its CSA. That's either twice that or close to twice that of London and Paris.

What could be fooling you is that Manhattan is so built up with skyscrapers and then the other boroughs mostly have highrises. Places like London and Paris have few skyscrapers and mostly highrises, so it seems more continual. Hope that makes sense. If NYC added Philly to its CSA which I can imagine them doing sometime in the near future. There's no real drop off of urbanity from Philly to NYC, then you can add six more million to the CSA giving it almost thirty million. NYC is not small. I can assure you.

No, I am including all five boroughs, New Jersey, Connecticut and Long Island with my analysis. The density level drops off dramatically outside NYC and parts of New Jersey when you look at the aerial shots.

I know NYC is not small. It is the largest the city in the US by far and looks like it. It does not look big compared to other mega cities around the world. The area you described between New York and Philadelphia is nothing compared to many parts of Asia.

The Pearl River Delta (Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Guangzhou etc) region for example has 120 million people with just slightly more land than the NYC metro area and has exponentially more high rises and density. Basically the region has over five times the population with the same amount of area. Pretty crazy and it like looks it.

Compare pictures of Shanghai or Sao Paulo.....NYC looks small in comparison. Shanghai does have skyscrapers and it covers a MUCH larger area than Manhattan. Insane skyline. I know New York has high rises in all its boroughs, but not like Shanghai.

Sao Paulo generally has just has highrises and not skyscrapers, but it goes forever. I think Sao Paul has like 40,000 high rises. No joke. New York is has around 7,000-8,000 but of course some much taller buildings. That is a big difference though.

NYC does not have the continuous density levels of Paris. I know the NYC metro area is much larger in area and population, but it does not look like it in aerial pictures imho. Maybe your explanation is the reason.

NYC basically looks like Scranton compared to Tokyo. Clearly the largest city in the world.

Don't let the trees fool you when it comes to aerials of NJ and parts of Long Island. Its dense, especially the NJ side. Lots of apartments, usually in the 4-5 range inhabit parts of Essex, Passaic, Union, and so on, but often the trees make it seem not as dense compared to Brooklyn or Queens. Northern areas to the Bronx are also littered with density.

What might be deceiving about NJ are what look like single family homes, especially approaching NYC, but these are really apartments. Similar to how Providence, RI looks like its a bunch of single-units from the air, but often they are 4-5 families in each structure.
