Bear Mountain – Forty Miles From “One World Trade Center”

This past week I drove up to Harriman State Park, NY, on the Hudson River. From the top of Bear Mountain, New York City, 30 to 40 miles to the south, is visible on clear days.

The top image is from just below the Bear Mountain Tower, and shows the vista to the south.  The next image is from the same capture, enlarged and enhanced. In it, NYC’s skyline is clearly seen, with the George Washington Bridge at far left, …and “One World Trade Center” at far right. The iconic and once dominent Empire State Building is seen right of “Central Park Tower” the newest and now tallest building in the city …EXCEPT for the tower on One World Trade Center. (click the link below to see my previous post showing the very top of that tower.)

Thanks for viewing, zoom in for a closer look and comments are always welcome. M πŸ™‚

  1. Thanks, me too. I’m looking at a picture I took many, many years ago, and considering a now and then comparison post. The old pic is really low quality, but the skyline comparison is epic. M πŸ™‚
