New York Harbor
While updating our New York City photos for our website, I came across this wonderful photo by German Ramos taken in a helicopter above the entrance of New York Harbor. The Statue of Liberty is lower left. Manhattan is bordered by the Hudson River (left) and the East River. Photo taken in May of 2001 shows the former World Trade Center towers, and how they dominated the skyline of the city. That's Ellis Island, center left.
