Manhattan Skyline from 1180 Raymond Boulevard, Newark, NJ
This is the view from my window. On a clear day the view of Manhattan is incredible and on a smoggy day the city completely disappears. On a clear night the lights are really awesome. This view is to the east.
That is the Empire State Building in the dead center. Just to the left a little you can make out the top of the Chrysler Building. In the foreground you can see the mounds of shipping containers on the Pasaic River in Newark.
On the right hand side there is a tall spire, that is the old MetLife Building on Madison and 23rd.
