A Strikingly Different View to the South

The Manhattan skyline: cards, paintings, pictures, and cleverly drawn into the title of Woody Allen’s 1979 movie. While the new bridge’s shared use path will face north to the Hudson Valley, the Big Apple deserves mention nonetheless.

And if some folks had had a say in the spans’ design, then pedestrians and bicyclists on the shared use path would be checking out this scenery:

Summers past I’d visit a friend in the city (and we know which city, right?) and walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. We’d time it so we were facing lower Manhattan when the sun began to set. A gorgeous image. So is this dramatic view below:

The city that never sleeps also doesn’t disappoint, even from 25 miles away.

I’d like to know what you think.
