Hold On, This Drone Video of Philadelphia Is Everything

Remember yesterday when everyone went bananas over the drone video of The Divine Lorraine Hotel? Well, a reader tipped us off to a little site called Dronestagram — a social network for drone users to share their floating pictures and videos. Offering incredible vantage points of cities the world over, the site is a treasure trove of awe-inspiring scenery (and techno music) and quite addicting. While the music isn't our favorite choice for the Philadelphia video, the shots speaks for themselves. Landmarks such as Eastern State Penitentiary, Ben Franklin Bridge, Philadelphia Museum of Art, SS United States and the Please Touch Museum dazzle in shots taken at all hours of the day and night. Think drone-work is easy? Stick around to the end of the video for a special surprise from pilot David Mielcarek.
