Montauk, New York. The End.

mbird1985

On a map of New York State, the town of Montauk is one of the easiest to recognize.  It sits at the far end of Long Island, which extends for about 190 km (just under 120 mi.) east from the East River and is home to well over 7 million people.  Situated at the tip of the island's South Fork (the longer of its two eastern branches), Montauk is far removed from the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens and the adjacent Nassau County.  Check out its beautiful beaches from above in this drone video by mbird1985.

Fog Over Baltimore

Eyes in the Sky

The Inner Harbor of Baltimore, Maryland was once one of the busiest shipping ports on the USA's East Coast.  As shipping technology progressed, the port's shallow waters could not accommodate the larger ships, and the port was relocated to deeper waters.  Eventually the area was redeveloped into an entertainment/mixed use district.  Contributor Eyes in the Sky used DJI Phantom 4 drone to create this aerial view of the Inner Harbour area, with downtown Baltimore in the background.

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.

Baltimore, Maryland in the Mid-Atlantic USA has deep roots as a port city.  While the city's Inner Harbor area has been converted to other uses (in part because it was not deep enough to handle the deep drafts of large containerships), the port still remains one of the top 20 in the country, and it is the largest dry bulk port on the East Coast.  In this drone video, top contributor Jeff Walrich gives us an epic aerial view of the harbor landmark known as the Sugar Shack, the country's largest terminal for receiving sugar.
