Before anyone says anything, there was a sign with rules at the beginning of the park that didn't say anything about drone flying.
This park just opened in jan. Its called brookfield park. Former landfill; part of fresh kills landfill (now turning into a park as well) in staten island. If you wish to check out the vlog version of this video head to my YouTube page youtube.com/mustang2005

Nice video!
Some motion was less smooth, maybe you could lower the sensitivity of the controls a bit

I subscribed to your channel (trainsandtrucks)

Thanks for the subscribe. I wasn't really trying to be cinematic i just wanted a quick view of the park plus it was really windy. I had an nd 8pl filter on it as well. Im waiting for it to be more spring like then i will revisit the site with a more cinematic video.

Know what the old building at 1:18 mark was?  Looks like owner didn't want to let property go.

Definitely i kinda wish i had a model airplane to fly around here. There is a model plane field next door on the other side of the creek, but this is more interesting to fly over IMO

Its ok it's my fault i should of made the caption a longer duration. There will definitely be a follow up video to this when the trees start to bloom and its not as dead looking from winter.

Very nice video.
We have a landfill that they have been working on for years to make into a park. Last I saw it ,still looked like a landfill.

You also had nice music to go along with your video.

Not your fault.  I was not paying enough attention first time.  When I went back to look at old trolly barn, I started right after caption.  Thus missing it 2nd time.

If legal, I would try to look through any openings of barn.  If there is an old trolly still in there, it might make a cool picture.  Possibly capturing some of window frame as part of picture.  Then trying adding vignette and sepia to pcitre.  Or possibly converting image to simulated pencil sketch?

I did something similar, then had picture printed on large cloth.  Funny thing is, people think its a black and white picture of shallow river in the winter.  But it wasn't!

Thank you it was very hard to find royalty free music that you dont have to pay for on sound cloud, and i still got a copyright claim anyway?! Sound is always a weak point in my videos. I'm not good with matching good music to a video. Im glad you liked it.

They emptied it out and relocated contents inside to another place (its in the video but comes up quick on your right corner maybe a few seconds before my historic Richmondtown caption) they are like metal barns they stored that stuff in. I wouldn't feel comfortable getting too close because of trees, powerlines, and lots of traffic. Maybe next time I'll do a few orbits. itsinot accessable by foot neither because of fencing unfortunately.
Edit: pause at 4:55 on your right youll see 3 big metal barn things
