Southeast

Here is a vista looking southeast across midtown Manhattan, taken from the Rockefeller Center Observatory (click anyone of the 4 following links to see previous posts with views in other directions: North, South, East and Midtown). The most prominent bridge in the center is the Manhattan Bridge, which connects Manhattan (via Canal Street) to Brooklyn (click the photo to get an enlarged view to see all these details). If you look very carefully behind it to the right, you can see part of the Brooklyn Bridge. Behind these bridges is Brooklyn, looking all the way out to Coney Island and Brighton Beach. The large patch of green at center left is Prospect Park - a large magnificent park designed by Olmsted & Vaux, who also did Central Park. The bridge at the upper right is the Verrazano Narrows which connects Brooklyn (in Bay Ridge) to the eastern end of Staten Island. The large body of water is the Lower New York Bay (with New Jersey behind it), leading out to the Atlantic Ocean ...

Thanks - when I'm tired and can't get inspired, a photo like this of NYC will always do it.

Really amazing photos of an amazing city. It seems almost surreal, doesn't it? I like the view of Central Park the best--an oasis.
