I love these long distance photo's too. I remember watching the US open tennis tournament a few years back and they showed some shots of Manhatten from the top of one of the show courts and it looked amazing. I don't know I guess it looked 5 miles away but in reality it's probably 20 miles away!! Just shows the shear size of Manhatten. Thanks for listing the photo's.

^what he said. :tup:

Whereabouts in that pic would the World Product Center stand?

From that angle, it would appear closer to the Chrysler than the Empire State.

That is one thing about NYC I always loved is the fact that you can be in the densest city yet be so close to the mountains and nature at the same time. What a great location.

I'd have to say those last 2 shots were taken from Route 17 about 25+ miles from the George Washington Bridge. It looks like the begining of Rt. 17, in NJ, not far from Suffern, NY.
