Approaching & Reaching NYC

A driver's POV shot from an expressway in Brooklyn goes over a rise to reveal the distant skyline of NYC. Good shots of fifties vehicles and urban rooftops. Jump cut to a shot of midtown Manhattan shot from across the Hudson. Two other skyline shots include an overhead shot looking north from midtown that takes in the big expanse of Central Park. Great kitschy soundbite says, "Down the road from where you live are the millionfold destinations of our people."
