Exploring the Brooklyn Bridge

I have always been fascinated by how elegant the design of the Brooklyn Bridge is. Despite being one of NYC’s most popular attractions, it is a bridge with a huge cultural and historical impact. I think it would be really cool to make a short documentary on it. The documentary would focus on the history behind the Brooklyn Bridge (the history behind its amazing design, why it used to represent ‘innovation’ back when it was built, and how it has now changed to represent NYC’s past and where New Yorkers came from); also it would focus on the cultural impact that it has had over the years (how it immediately became a cultural sensation, and how/why it has become one of New York’s most visited sights). The reason I think that a documentary like that suits well with this class, is because drones can offer us unique perspectives of the bridge (angles that otherwise one can only take with helicopters). I checked the map of where drones are allowed, and it seems that it is perfectly legal to fly drones near the Brooklyn Bridge (obviously we would not go on top of cars and people, but would only fly on the side of the bridge above the water). The only risk involved with a documentary like this is that we would have to fly the drone above water (which is kind risky in case anything goes wrong with the drone).
