The Spirit of Vlogging

In the spirit of vlogging, I've decided to revisit my footage from Manhattan Plane Crash day.

First of all... I spent ~ two hours going to the crash site, checking it out and coming back. When I looked at the television, the apartments were still on fire. That's ridiculous, considering I had just been on the scene, and there was nothing but a small amount of smoke coming out of the building. It was like that when I got there, so the fire had been out for AT LEAST an hour, and still, the television was showing four windows with fires a-blazin'. :/ I'm now convinced that the fire may have been out before I even left my house, considering the exact same footage continued to run all day.

Anyway... I figured I'd go "between the lines", into what I consider out-takes from the plane crash video. They didn't add anything to the "going to the crash site" story, so they ended up on the cutting room floor... however, if someone's never been on a bus in Manhattan, NYC or walked down the street here, they might enjoy seeing it.

Of course, New York City isn't always like this. :D This was a special event, so Police, Fire, EMS, etc were making sure they were in position to handle the situation.

And... no... I wasn't looking through the viewfinder while I was walking/jogging from 78th (I thought they reported the crash on 77th) to 72nd. :)

Welcome to New York.....
