We found this great short video by London-based illustrator, artist and animator Patrick Vale.  The Manhattan perspective is taken from the Empire State Building looking south toward the new development of the Freedom Tower.  The Flat Iron building lies in the foreground, while the Brooklyn and  Verrazzano Bridges anchor the eastern edge with Jersey City’s Goldman Sachs Tower flank the western edge. After marveling at the final illustration at the end of the time-lapse clip, we were hooked and wanted to see more of Vale! Check out more illustrations by Vale – including great ones of Florence and London – after the break.
