This is the first-ever drone footage from inside the New York Auto Show, and it’s stunning.

Having just spent the better part of last week roaming the halls and displays, we can confirm: it’s a lot prettier without the thronging crowds blocking every sight line.

The footage comes from a quiet evening just before Friday’s public sneak preview—a state of repose the show doesn’t often see between the opening of press days and the closing of public access.

In other words, this is the best view you’re likely to get, even if you do make it to the show in person.

Enjoy the show—and if you see something you like but don’t know enough about, you’ll find the details at our 2015 New York Auto Show hub.
