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.

I seem to remember the mountains are called The Ramapo Mountains. They aren't very tall, but do add greatly to New York City's natural setting (as seen in this thread). When I visit family, I often hear and see the names of different things there. I remember hearing Ramapo Mountains many times.

These are all beautiful. Please continue to update this thread!

Yeah, crop out the left side, and you couldn't be blamed for thinking it was.
