This is a view of the Manhattan skyline from Route 3 in New Jersey. This is not my picture but is very close to my house. The view at Dawn or Dusk is beautiful-- this picture doesn't really do it justice.
The Western and Southern State is more Rural (until you start nearing Philadelphia, PA) I am kinda envious of the wilderness in a lot of your guys' photos. I'm stuck square in the middle of densest part of the densest state in the US population wise. The majority of HBO's The Sopranos was filmed all over this area (I know because I had to sit in traffic for filming a number of times) and Bravo's The Real House Wives of New Jersey all live in this area as well. So any of the scenery you see in those programs is pretty much what I wake up to.
"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens
