Do your boring Tuesday morning a favor and check out this killer little video. A swing ride off the top of the Chrysler Building! A giant pirate ship ride swinging from the top of the Brooklyn Bridge! A zippy Superman roller coaster swirling around Grand Central Station! This is the New York City I was promised!
Fernando Livschitz exploits tilt shift, some crazy after effects, and a great deal of imagination in the promotion for Coney Island’s Luna Park. Turning the world’s cities into amusement parks is evidently this dude’s specialty—and if you’re going to have a specialty, it’s pretty awesome to have it be whimsey.
It’s almost frightening how real this Manhattan looks. And it’s definitely disappointing to know I can’t actually swing precariously from the pointiest point of Midtown. Guess I’ll be headed to Coney Island this weekend.
