"..Big Brother is watching you.

Without fanfare, the NYPD has begun installing Sky Watch, an eye in the sky mounted on a tower, The Post has learned.

The Sky Watch, about two stories tall, consists of a booth for a cop that stands atop a tower that collapses when the officer is ready to leave.

The booth, which gives the cop a line of sight from 20 feet up, has four cameras, a high-powered spotlight and various sensors. The digital cameras, which continue recording when the booth is unstaffed, save the video to a hard drive.
