The View atop the Whitestone Bridge

Skyline from the Whitestone bridge
Photo by myself from the Whitestone Bridge.

The Whitestone Bridge is a huge suspension bridge that crosses the East River, connecting Queens with the Bronx. Sounds complicated, but the bridge is basically located northeast of Manhattan.

The first tower on the left with the spire is the Empire State Building.

Spectacular view. The skyline looks so unfamilar without the World Trade Center.
Have a great weekend!

great catch here. I love this view of Manhattan, one of my favorites, especially on a clear day.
Very nice Kitty!

I agree with Fredrik - with out the WTC is still a gorgeous view but a little empty somehow...

Hi Fredrik
Yes, it's sad isn't it? Without the WTC the skyline is just another skyline. *Sigh*

Thanks Lily!

Hi Elsiee
One cannot help but think of that fateful day. It is still very sad.
