The Upper East Side really must escape one's mind and it really isn't hard to blame them since most shots people see on here don't include that view from the east. The midtown view from the Hudson River is far more popular. Many shots here do not include this area that is very much so connected to Midtown. The bulk of the skyline really doesn't end at 59th. It pretty much begins at Madison Square and runs well into the East 90's.
While it is not significantly beautiful or dynamic it is quite dense
Easily connected to the bulk of Midtown
No there aren't any 800 and 900 ft. towers dominating up there but it really isn't too shabby
of the area is cut off in that shot^^
Here is an aerial of the area:
and the skyline from Madison Square on up into uptown and the east 90's even Spuyten-Duyville in the Bronx from what I think is Broad Channel in Queens? I guess trick photography is used in this one as well..
Hope that helps for some of you guys who never take the Upper East Side into consideration with the whole Skyline.
Hope you all have a very happy and healthy and SAFE New Year's Eve.. see ya in 07'
