When you're Time Magazine, you have the ability and resources to do awesome things like this.

The folks at TIME wanted to take an enormous, 360-degree interactive panoramic photo of the New York City skyline.

What better way to do that than to climb to the top of the Freedom Tower (just shy of 1,800 feet up), snap about 600 photos and stitch them all together?

Check out this video that shows how they went about this massive feat. It's a great watch.
