    Ok, so heres the situation.

    My aunt runs an event planning business and is always finding venues.
    One of her venues is in the city (NYC) on a rooftop.

    But not a skyscraper thing. It's a shorter building in between others (below 300 ft).
    She would like me to get a good shot of the roof from high up (video and pictures) Especially a 90 degree shot pointing straight down.

    I told her I would need to look at the area to see if its even possible to do so (how crowded the location is, etc etc)

    *IF* it's a possibility, should I use ATTI mode so GPS doesnt freak out around the buildings?

    I'd be pretty careful here. I suspect that you might be in controlled airspace. Also, NYC is pretty sensitive after that irresponsible nut flew his banging around into high rise buildings then finally crashed.
