I got a new bike to avoid the subway to go to work,
was riding all over brooklyn and parts of queens and had a lot of fun and exercise.

Was thinking if there's a way to potentially monetize this activity,

NYC is the U.S. center of the epidemic, maybe lots of people would be curious to see how the streets and life in NYC is during the crisis right now,
i could ride by the hospitals and stuff and show the tents outside and things like that.

What do you guys think?

Just spent 10 bucks on a head harness
Spent 35 bucks on GoPro 3.

Just stay out of Area ???? ha ha! Usually if you're one of those Urban Explorers you're going in the places where no one else can get. Although, we shall see how many of them get into trouble during this time.

Hope you won’t hurt. There’s no place for hurt bikers in hospitals.

What a very ignorant, immature, and inconsiderate thing to do. I don't think people are going to give a shit.

You may end up just getting your new toys taken away and face some punishment depending on who you piss off.

Do it. If you're doing it to get to work then ignore the haters. No harm. Just extra perspective to what's going on.

Yes, people will watch. Just don't make the viewer dizzy. Not sure where the camera will be mounted but just make it a steady ride. You might only have 5 views the 1st month but continue to make the videos and people will watch if they are good quality. I'm not sure about putting too much time in by the hospital. People that aren't from that area like to see things that normally are not on the internet. Take them through the neighborhood(s) if any. Down streets that normally aren't filmed. Make it different. Let us know what the channel is.

I say do it and post links here. This is a perfect opportunity to narrate New York while it's empty of all the tourists. New York hasn't been this empty since the city was founded. What's happening now won't be forgotten for a long time might as well document it. Get a good close up of banners and notices of closed buildings. Go inside the busiest subways and record the calmness. Go to hospitals and morgues and record the bodies been hauled off but be respectful about it. Also film the Navy Hospital that's anchored there. Go to time square and record the billboards also the red light on top of the empire state building.

I’d be interested to see you ride by some hospitals. I’ve see some videos of Elmhurst and Brooklyn Hospital Center totally empty. No one in the ER whatsoever and all those tents for testing completely empty as well, as in void of people AND equipment.

Do it. I like the idea. It's different and I'm sure New York looks completely different than normal so it will show a good perspective of the city.

Plus more people spending time on YouTube due to quarantine and being stuck in the house so you never know.

Where did you order your camera from? No joke, I ordered the Rexing dashcam at 3:09pm Wednesday and it arrived right at 25 hours later (Amazon).

You could market it as unintentional ASMR

Whatever we'll see how it looks, its all just for fun anyway.

why don't just do it and SEE for yourself?

and you're not going to monetize for a long time, there's no quick money in making youtube videos unless you go viral quickly and build up a big audience quickly

Im an idiot guys...

So i order camera and head strap and that took some time to arrive.
when it comes i realize the strap didn't come with the frame and bolt,
so i order that and wait some more days.
when that comes i remembered i need memory card so i ordered that.
when that arrived i realized my battery would only last 1.5 hours at most, so i need more batteries.
so i ordered 4 of those and waited some more.

by the time i got all the equipment its already May lol... kinda of the corona fears are already gone mostly.
I think ill just do 1 long video of me riding around brooklyn, visiting Maimonedes hospital and coney island hospital, as well as coney island beach, and make a nice little map of my route and timestamps in the youtube description of all the streets im at or something.

I hope wave 2 of corona doesn't happen, but if it does, ill be prepared this time.

And by the time you bought all of that and waited ......................................................................................... you could have just ordered it from Amazon, got it within a couple of days and already had 10 videos up. Oh well, we all do stuff like that. People will still be interested in videos of New York. Do some walking tours, bike riding and if you have a car, some dashcam tours. Do some morning/ mid-day / evening/ night..... they are all different and every street is different. You could make a new video every day and it would never be the same.

DLB,
Why not put it on your gaming channel and also make another channel and put it on there. See what results you get. If you put good SEO on it, you might luck out with just 1 video.
