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.)

A view from the eastern side of the mountain,  Bear Mountain Bridge crosses the Hudson River

A N.J. Brush with Hurricane Dorian

From Island Beach State Park, 24 hours after the passing of Hurricane Dorian, the still angry sea proved alluring to the brave surfers, who were apparently exempt from the otherwise no swimming advisories.
