Across the Hudson River, midtown and north. Note the new and very tall  “residential” skyscrapers now beginning to dominate the skyline to the left.

A view slightly south: the Chrysler Building, left; Times Square area buried within, just to its right; and the Empire State Building.

Four miles down-river stands the Freedom Tower.

This wide view shows the tower in lower Manhattan; Jersey City to the right; and lower pathways and view spots in the park (foreground.) Jeanne is talking to a friend, Linda, on the bench.

Looking down river with my telephoto lens, the Verrazano Narrows Bridge is almost 12 miles to the south. Just beyond and left (out of sight,) the Atlantic Ocean.

It was a nice day for a visit to this special little place.

Thanks for viewing, and as usual, comments are always welcome.

      Always a pleasure reading your posts. Did not realize you were principal in our neighboring Franklin Lakes. My wife was a teacher for many years in the Oakland School system before retiring a few years ago. She recalls a meeting or two in your school. M 🙂
