Pics by me. Taken last night from High Rock Mountain in Warren NJ. Can see NYC in the distance along with the NJ. About 890 ft up. Damn trees are in the way, but you can see Midtown right by the tree on the left, and 1 WTC in the distance, along with the land of property taxes all over.
This is about 32-35 miles from NYC, approximate, depending on which section of the Island.
The urbanize NJ Corridor.
Here is a zoomed version towards NY. Its on a cellphone, and I don’t have state of the art night equipment.
The views are quite incredible. Perspective via the pilots from the cockpit. Heading towards LGA on a clear day. Well worth the watch, and in full screen.
