Gotham 7.5K: A Rare High Altitude Night Flight Above NYC


Imagine leaning out of an open door of a helicopter 7,500 feet over New York City on a very dark and chilly night… And seeing this.

“It is both exhilarating and terrifying all at once… Let’s just start off by saying this was the scariest helicopter “photo mission” of my career… And the most beautiful. The complexity of this city is even more impressive from above than it is from closeup on the ground as your can truly appreciate its incredible scale.” – Vincent Laforet, filmmaker (DGA Director) photographer, producer, entrepreneur, teacher, advisor & very very proud father of two.
