I'm always in the east-facing part of my apartment and the only reason I got that shot was because the shot I took right before that one (check the numbers) was this one to the east. When I see something like that, it tells me I'd better take a look at what's going on in the west.

I noticed that yesterday too and wondered if you would snap a shot.

When the sun sets behind a building and it's snowing slightly, the rays that get by either side of that building have something in the air to illuminate: the snow. Normally, there's nothing there but air, so it doesn't look like this. The high-rises were already slightly obscured because of the snow between them and my location and the rays that aren't blocked by the buildings are just lighting up that snow.

You may be able to see a few flakes in the center-tree area that's not illuminated.

I thought I heard something resembling fireworks last night - even with the windows closed. Sure enough, I could see something in the vicinity of Midtown Manhattan. I think all the buildings shown are new ones in the Jersey City area.

Here's all the info: http://www.ecns.cn/hd/2019-02-12/detail-ifzekwei6641100.shtml#1 and a GREAT picture.

I wish I was in Weehawken last night, especially if I could have gotten shots like that.

After the pair of Fives, the first picture is NOT from The Record, but rather from its local step-child - the Hackensack Chronicle. The Chronicle is a weekly rag that arrives with the Friday Record, though its purpose escapes me.

It only contains news that's at least a week old - news you've already read in The Record. However, this image was NOT in The Record. If it was, you'd already have seen it in this thread.

Why?

I've been under the same Route 4 bridge as these "Volunteers" (why is that capitalized?), but I've yet to come across the section that has the nice flooring, good lighting and decent, clean clothing (that still has a dry cleaner's plastic bag over it) that the image depicts.

Nice to see that the Chronicle is picking up on The Record's ghastly habits (keep it in the family) and here's the lastest installment of said gaffes:

As for the union truck parked in front of a no parking sign, were you suggesting it should be ticketed?

Once again, you're missing the point. I'm saying that there are big attention-grabbing things in the center of the picture that was chosen to represent the story, yet they are not addressed in either the story OR the caption. Why run the picture if you don't explain what's in it?

1,2. The first two images were taken about a month-and-a-half ago and the reason it says "Mansion House" is because of what stood there from 1751-1945. The Mansion House was Washington's HQ while his troops camped out on The Green after scuttling the British chase of the troops at the Hackensack River by burning down New Bridge near the Steuben House.

This was also the first stop on their retreat across NJ.

I just came across a 10 year-old post that said: "Still waiting for someone with deep pockets to buy 50 Main Street, knock it down, and rebuild the Mansion House !!!  I guess that'll have to wait till I become super-wealthy."

Well, you're in luck, JW. 50 Main just got knocked down. Got the bucks?


3-9. I approached this from behind after walking down Moore St and worked my way up Washington Pl, taking the stitch from The Green.


10. I saw this across from 50 Main, which I think will make a certain editor happy:


11,12. Continuing north up Main, I took these two shots on the corner of Bridge and Main:
