Flying from Chicago to New York City

We flew from ORD to LGA on 1/23. I booked a window seat on the left side and got my prayer. I was able to take magnificent shots of downtown Chicago and Manhattan skylines..

Here you go:

Approaching NYC:
Is this Newark or JFK?

I saw your thread in ssp. That first chicago pic is fukcin sick! The Loop looks rather small from above but I'll admit, I prefer its skyline over Manhattan's. Good job, this thread has just made my day.

Hey koolkid, thanks for the nice words.

I actually feel the same way. But I might be too biased since I am really in love with Chicago.

This one was taken a year ago again in winter:

Great work, Hauchyi!

The utter immensity of New York is demonstrated by the fact that massive buildings the size of London's Swiss Re are not even visible in this ocean of skyscrapers.

Tall buildings, like the San Remo condominim on Central Park West (pictured below) are not even visible in this sea of skyscrapers!
