Video shows Pope Francis' perspective as he rode through Central Park Friday. (WABC)

More than 80,000 people saw Pope Francis as he traveled through Central Park Friday, and now we're getting a look at what he saw.

Video released shows the pope's perspective of the procession. The camera was positioned directly behind Pope Francis, so it allows us to see the enormous crowd to which he waves and occasionally give a "thumbs up."

Security was very tight for the procession. Fences were placed along the road to keep the crowd back, limiting access to the pope as he rode by in the popemobile.
