New York may be the City That Never Sleeps, but Discover Footage’s recent video of the Big Apple from above can only be described as dreamlike. Hovering high above the city and floating through cloud banks, the camera captures early-morning New York, depicting an uncharacteristically peaceful, even sleepy, version of the city.

Filmed from a helicopter in September 2015, the footage gives a tour of New York City from above. Featuring iconic landmarks like the Empire State Building, Central Park, and Times Square, the video makes these familiar sights seem strangely serene. Even the flashing lights of Times Square are less hectic when seen through a shroud of clouds. Check out “Sleeping Giants” by Discover Footage, and experience New York City in a rare moment of calm.
