New York — Hudson Yards in New York City officially opened to the public on March 15. To celebrate this milestone, EarthCam premiered its 4K construction time-lapse movie for the massive development.
From December 2012 to March 2019, EarthCam’s cinema-quality gigapixel cameras documented each stage of Hudson Yards, the largest private real estate development in the history of the United States. More than 3 million megapixel photographs and 500,000 hours of imagery were archived, including ultra-widescreen panoramic views of Manhattan cityscape.
“It’s been a rewarding experience working with The Related Companies to document this iconic development”, said Brian Cury, CEO and Founder of EarthCam. “The massive scale of this project presented unique challenges, requiring continual reprogramming of more than 72 unique robotic camera angles positioned around Manhattan’s West Side and across the Hudson River in New Jersey. We hope this time-lapse does justice to the story of this epic achievement.”
