New York City Pictures

Recommended Posts

Here are some pics I took this December from the Empire State Building. It was a gorgeous day, but the windchill was in the negatives. I nearly froze to death, but it was well worth it.

I haven't been to NYC in three or so years, I need to plan a vacation up there! I think it's impossible to get too much NYC, no other city in NA comes close!

The cold makes for really clean air and sharp pics, so you're pain was worth it for the rest of us. :thumbsup:

In the one photo looking across the river, what is the one lone skyscraper looming into the sky and what city is this?  Is this Newark or Paterson?  Please let me know.

That's Queens, Long Island City.

The Citicorp Building, tallest in NYC outside of Manhattan (I think tallest in New York State outside of Manhattan).

As far as I know, this is correct... The Citicorp Building is the tallest in NYS outside Manhattan (at like 670 ft), while I think the central tower of Empire State Plaza in Albany is the tallest outside of New York City, at 590 ft, I think. I'm not sure about some of the new White Plains Buildings, but I remember reading they were about 350 ft or so...

Yeah, the Corning tower in Empire State Plaza, or as I will continue to call it, the Sony Playstation tower, is the tallest outside of NYC.

I'm glad I found this thread. Those are some great pictures!

I really need to get back up to NYC.

Like Neo said, it's impossible to get to much New York!

Heres one I took this past summer.

I don't think webshots allows hotlinking (i.e. displaying an image on another website). Some free alternatives for hosting images online and displaying them on other sites (such as message boards like UrbanPlanet) include: Flickr, Photobucket, fotop, ImageShack, and UploadHut.

I personally use Flickr and Photobucket. UrbanPlanet has a Flickr Group for sharing photos.

PS: If you view the photo on webshots' site, then view this thread, your computer keeps the image in it's cache and shows it here, but others who haven't visited the webshots site, can't see it. It's an awesome shot by the way!
