Mountaintop removal mine in New York City, New York!

The National Memorial for the Mountains was created in Google Earth because it provides an opportunity to communicate the scale of mining operations in a way people outside the region can understand. Here, the 10,000 acre Hobet mountaintop removal complex in Boone County, W.Va., is shown superimposed over Manhattan in New York City.
