Snowy Scenes from My Window Seat

As I departed from New York City via LaGuardia airport a week ago or so, I snapped some quick photos from my smartphone.  Little did I realize how good the pictures would turn out (for a smartphone).  The flight took off in a westerly direction, crossed Manhattan and the Hudson River into New Jersey after which the turn south began…

If someone can identify any of the parts of NY/NJ shown in these pictures, I’d love to know!

  1. NY and NJ look better in snow! Great shots through glass. The Hudson looks awesome.

    • Lol – yes, the snow brings a little more purity to those streets! I had never noticed the cliffs on the western side of the Hudson. Must explore…

  2. Wow, the photos did turn out really great for being taken from a smartphone. I love seeing the patterns of cities from the air.

    • Thanks, Adelina. I was pretty pleased with the photos! The snow definitely help highlight the patterns and lines of the city. I was lucky!
