Queensboro (59th Street) Bridge and Midtown Manhattan at Night, NYC

Went over to Roosevelt Island today. For those who don't know, I think it's where the city kept the lepers or something. Also, I believe Spider-Man fought Willem Dafoe there. Anyway, this is the Queensboro aka 59th St. Bridge. Not the prettiest during the day, but it looks OK at night. I wanted to get a shot with some identifiable buildings in the background—here, the Citigroup Center, Bloomberg Tower, and UN. The glow from the Empire State Building is also apparent. Because most of the buildings around the bridge are residential, there weren't as many lights on as I was hoping. I need to meet someone who lives on Roosevelt Island to get me onto the roof of one of the buildings.
