• Short Summary

    Lovely aerial shots of Manhattan, Staten Island, Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building.

  • Description

    New York, United States of America.

    Full title reads: "Now hold tight and we'll take you over to New York for a "Four miles up" view of the City."

    Introductory intertitle reads: "See the first motion pictures of New York from this great height, in a daring altitude flight."

    Aerial shots of Manhattan, Staten Island and the Statue of Liberty - very nice shots. Some shots include another aircraft, a biplane.

    Narrator gets very enthusiastic about the fact that it is the first time aerial shots have been taken from this altitude. "It looks like a toy town, modelled in clay" he says" "A beautiful sight that few have the opportunity of ever seeing."

    Nice aerial shot of the Empire State Building.

    Safety print exists.
