Smile NEW YORK: from the hills to Manhattan

Great shots of the skyline from Bear Mountain State Park, from Q's wandering...

Cool!
That's an astonishingly clear day. I've been up there a few times and had no idea you could see the city. I think it's about 35 miles or so.

Riding the Amtrak from Albany really shows how beautiful north of NY is. Then suddenly you're in darkness underneath the city, with all the graffiti and old pillars flying by. When you get to the Penn Station everything opens up at once. One of my favorite experiences, but maybe I'm easy to please that way.

I remember climbing that damn thing for some "team building" exercise during training for my first job in New York. Such a pain in the ass, but the view was certainly amazing once you got up there.

Seriously?

The Catskills are a little over an hour northwest, the Adirondacks are about 4-5 hours north. The Appalachian range is within easy driving distance. And there's hilly terrain as soon as you hit the suburbs to the north.

I love driving on the Taconic Parkway to Hudson NY. One of the most pleasant drives leaving NYC. You are literally surrounded by park land, forests and hills. Except that you must obey the speed limit. Cops will get you.

Cool pic. I think I recognize the higher mountain to the left as Mount Marcy and the one on the right (closer) as Algonquin Mountain in the High Peaks region of the Adirondacks.

ESB looks especially massive from that distance.

These are my favorite kind of skyline pics, where you can just make out a city's silhouette from a distance. Do we have any threads dedicated to shots of this sort on the forum?

One of my old high school friends lives on this hill in Hasbrouck Heights, must be on, like, a neighboring street. I always get this view from his front porch. It looks especially cool at night.
