> Drone footage of Manhattan from the pandemic (Time Out)

I'm sorry but isn't this illegal to fly a drone above Manhattan or has that law changed?

Very cool shots otherwise.

Yes, those are some stunning photos. If from drones, I too question the legality of drones over Manhattan or anywhere over NYC after 9/11. The interior shots of Grand Central are stunning and not from drones.
