Philly Sunrise Reflections


Contributor Chris Dantonion used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone to create this magnificent video of the Philadelphia skyline at sunrise.  If you see the shot which begins at the :30 mark, you'll see a shot of City Hall - it's the building with the clock and the statue on top.  Until the 1980's, no building was permitted which exceeded the height of City Hall: 167 meters (just under 550 ft.).  As you can see, lifting this restriction has fundamentally transformed the city's skyline.

Philly Phlight: January, 2018


Contributor ChrisDantonio used a Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian to create this epic drone video of Philadelphia's skyline. Once limited by the height of its City Hall, the city now has one of the country's most impressive skylines. At the :20 mark, you'll see the city's five tallest buildings, from left to right: Comcast Technology Center, Comcast Center, the BNY Mellon Building, One Libert Place, and Two Liberty Place.  All have been built since 1987, when the informal height restriction was lifted.

Take a tour of the great American city of Philadelphia, compliments of contributor Deniz.  The video opens with a great shot of City Hall; opened in 1901, for almost nine decades, no building was permitted to exceed the height of the William Penn statue atop it.   The video also features some great aerial footage of other parts of the city, such as the new Comcast Technology Center (now the tallest building on the East Coast outside of New York), the Ben Franklin Bridge, the Art Museum, and more.

Ben Franklin Bridge Sunrise Hyperlapse


The first bridge to cross the Delaware River in Philadelphia was the Delaware River Bridge, which connects the city to New Jersey.  Now  known as the Ben Franklin Bridge, it opened in 1926, in connection with the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.  When built, its 530 meter (1.75k ft.) main span was the longest in the world.  See this beautiful bridge in hyperlapse, compliments of contributor Chris Dantonio and his DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone.

Comcast Campus in Philly


Cable and media giant Comcast Corporation has almost singlehandedly transformed the skyline of Philadelphia, the second largest city on the USA's East Coast.  In 2008, its 58 story headquarters building became the city's tallest with a height of just under 300 meters (974 ft.).  A decade later, the company completed its 60 floor Comcast Technology Center, which has a height of 342 ft. (1,121 ft.).   The two Comcast Campus towers are on display in this excellent drone video by ChrisDantonio.

Fall in Philly at the Lemon Hill Mansion


Lemon Hill is a historic mansion located in Philadelphia's Fairmount Park, the city's largest.  It was built in the early 19th century by Henry Pratt, one of the city's leading merchants.  It sits on a site overlooking the east bank of the Schuykill River, near Boathouse Row.  The mansion was extensively restored in the early 20th century and in 1972 it was placed on the USA's National Historic Register.  You can see this historic site in this drone video by Chris Dantonio.

Philadelphia Art Museum Hyperlapse


Contributor ChrisDantonio used a DJI Mavic Pro 2 drone to create this awesome hyperlapse of Philadelphia Museum of Art, one of the most iconic sights in this city on the US East Coast.  The building opened in 1928, on the scenic Ben Franklin Parkway.  The building was a filming location for the 1976 blockbuster movie (and multiple  Academy Award winner) Rocky starring Sylvester Stallone; the scene where Rocky climbs the steps of the museum is one of the most famous in the history of film.
