Oooh nice! Thanks for that hella nice Manhattan Bridge and ES pic!
Poor Manhattan Bridge does not get the love she deserves, she really is quite beautiful.

Great pic! It appears like the Citigroup Center has a large spire on top but everyone knows it's the massive spire atop the Bank Of America Tower.

That photo makes Manhattan look like a fairytale land or a distant "Oz".

I can't wait to set foot in Manhattan- I'm making the San Francisco run, Part II. I transfer at JFK coming and going. On the way home, I am going to see if my flight to Halifax can be changed to the next day, allowing me to spend one day in NYC running around going apeshit with my camera

Of course, that's just to whet my appetite for a return visit

^I feel the same way (hometown MTL numero uno, but NYC....perpetually tops the list afterwards).

Didn't you notice on the plane when you started talking, eventually I started reading the vomit bag?

I was wondering what is the furthest away that anyone can see the Empire State Building from and if anyone has any photos of it from very far away. I was wondering it would be possible to see the Empire State Building from the top of the Comcast Center in Philadelphia or vice versa, since they are somewhere over 80 miles apart (given clear weather)? If anyone is ever able to check this, please post a photo. Since the ESB has so many lights, I would expect it would be easier to spot. I have heard that pilots saw some of the ESB lights back in the 1960's from as far as 300 miles away or other people saw the lights as far as 60 miles away from the ground.
