Default View of New York from Hoboken

Hoboken in New Jersey is one way commuters from New Jersey can get to New York City. Trains run from all over New Jersey and end there. "Path" trains (New Jersey's version of the subway) then take commuters across the Hudson River to Manhattan.

Beside Hoboken Terminal is a park called Erie Lackawanna. Its Esplanade which protrudes from the NJ shore offers a nearly 180-degree view of the entire west side of the Manhattan. The pictures here were taken from there.

#1) Looking uptown. New Jersey is to the left. Although you can't see it in this picture (you can in real life), George Washington Bridge which joins NJ and NY is in the distance.


#2) Looking straight into Manhattan, the view from Hoboken is somewhere between downtown and midtown.


#3) Downtown Manhattan


#4) Erie Lackawanna Park. The NJ Transit train and Path station lies under the building with the clock tower on the left. At the time I took this photo, the park was filled with sun-bathers. The city of Hoboken is popular among "upwardly-mobile commuters (known as yuppies)". (source: wikipedia.org)


Thank you for looking. C&C welcome.

Nice scapes. Miss the sight of the Twin Towers though.

I keep thinking that all your New York HDRs need to go into a book. It would be an amazing read with the images and your commentary.

Thank you, jelpee. Yes, I miss the twin towers, too.

Thank you, Barbarian. I trust your opinion and hope that someday I'll be able to compile them and submit them to a publisher.
