The View from the BQE

Skyline from the BQE
Photo by myself from the Brooklyn Queens Expressway, looking toward Manhattan.

I took this photo from the car as we whizzed down the highway from Long Island. The cloud cover is heavy - It's been raining here almost every day for the last three weeks.

You can see the pointy silhouette of the Citicorp building on the right, the Chrysler Building near the middle and the Empire State Building toward the left. Manhattan looks like one gigantic thing.

In the middle distance lies parts of Brooklyn. Greenpoint's warehouses and industrial plant lie in-between our view of Manhattan and the East River.


Hope everyone had a great Father's Day weekend.

Happy Monday everyone!

I gotta say, since the rain, we have had some of the most beautifully dramatic clouds(as captured in your photograph). It's not just a gray sheet covering the sun.

I had a great fathers day too! thanks
