I don't let the fact that I am grammatically challenged stop me from.....
It IS a great shot C.U. but I'll own up to ignorance, where a I looking over?
Good question.Most of the land in the foreground is Brooklyn. Then there is a body of water. It is call The Upper Bay, it is where the Hudson and East Rivers meat. (Neither is really a river but that is another story). Across the water is New Jersey.Lower Manhattan can be seen to the right. Tower 1 of the World Trade Center it to the far right. It is again the tallest building in NYC.

Thanks C.U. ! when I looked before, I couldn't find a landmark with which to get my bearings. When I read your description and had another look everything became clear. About the Hudson and the East, an estuary question I believe?Anyway thanks, I like a bit of a mystery, especially where my favourite world city is concerned :)
Nice views, nice photo, nice place to live!
You do not have to be nice!
