Drew Geraci of District 7 Media spent six months capturing 50,000 stills to create this crazy timelapse of Midtown New York City. 

"There were multiple times during this shoot that we were chased off, either by cops or the cold," the group says in the video's description. "The subway shots were particularly difficult to get, especially in the wake of the Boston bombings. We were led out and in some cases followed by police officers or MTA officials who seemed intent on getting us for using tripods."

All that work paid off as you'll see in the video. For all the intricacies of NYC, Geraci did an awesome job of capturing the calm within its madness.
