Photo by myself at 67th Street and Amsterdam Avenue, on the Upper West Side.
The view north on the Upper West Side is not one that's seen often. I took the above photo from a high floor of a new building on 67th Street, last week.
To the left is the Hudson River. Across the water is New Jersey. At the traffic triangle on the lower right, Broadway intersects Amsterdam Avenue, just below 72nd Street. Amsterdam Avenue is also known as Tenth Avenue.
There aren't as many tall, new buildings on the Upper West Side as there are on the East Side, for whatever reason. The older buildings on East Side are nearly all built in limestone on Park and Fifth Avenues, while the buildings on West End Avenue mainly use brick.
This is old New York. It's a little gritty and it's buildings as far as the eye can see.
