New York, NY

I woke up from a snooze during the initial approach to JFK, popped open the shade and this is what I saw. Scrambled for camera and took a few shots. Not great but good enough for those who are un-initiated.


I'm sure folks will add notes to this but for those of you who don't know this view from left to right:


New Jersey shore

Hudson River (George Washington bridge visible)

Manhattan (the island in the middle, Central park easily seen)

East River

Long Island on entire right which contains:

Brooklyn (closest to bottom)

Queens (beyond Brooklyn)


John F. Kennedy airport where we landed is further out on the Eastern shore of Long Island. You can see the other major airport on the west shore of Long Island toward to top-right of the image: La Guardia.


To drive home to Connecticut, which is directly north of here I cross Long Island on the Van Wick expressway (ugh), cross the Bronx Whitestone Bridge which is clearly visible just beyond LaGuardia in the upper right. Up the Hutchinson River Parkway which turns into I-684 and then, depending on traffic and snow, zig-zag into rural Connecticut.


Of course, more intersting viewed large
