For the last day of my 3 day visit to New York City I ventured out to Dumbo (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass), Brooklyn (via York subway station) for some photos of the New York City skyline at the edge of the day. Once you get off the subway and start walking towards the East River you can’t miss the first striking view, that of the Manhattan Bridge, seen below.
Once the blue hour arrived, I took a number of long exposure shots of 10 seconds each. I was situated high enough from the river’s edge to avoid being splashed, but some photographers got a bit wet from being too close to the water, their lessons learned for the night. After more than an hour in the cold, and seemingly happy with my shots, I packed up and stopped by a nearby cafe for some nice hot tea before heading back on the subway to my hotel in Long Island City neighborhood of the New York City borough of Queens.
Of the two photos, the featured image above and the one below, which one do you like best?
