VIDEO: Take a stunning timelapse trip to Midtown New York City

The sights and sounds of New York City are all captured in this incredible video.

IF YOU’VE DREAMED about getting away from it all and spending the day in New York City, we have just the video for you.

Made up of 50,000 still photographs and taking six months for District 7 Media to shoot, it’s a breathtaking look at an incredible city.

It takes in the city streets, the subways, the stores, the workers, the tourists and the people that make New York City special.

Plus, the added sound effects really help capture that feeling of being right there in the middle of the action.

It wasn’t an easy undertaking, as Drew Geraci from Distric 7 Media explained:

There were multiple times during this shoot that we were chased off, either by cops or the cold. 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.

But as you’ll see, it was all worth it:
