A cruise ship heading out of NY harbor towards the Atlantic. The tall building near the center of the frame is the new One World Trade in Lower Manhattan seen across Lower New York Harbor/Raritan Bay. Both of these taken from Sandy Hook, part of Gateway National Recreation Area. There are many decommissioned former coastal defense batteries here as well as a former Nike Missile base. No longer active, of course, but they still have missiles, launchers, and mobile control stations that are sometimes open for tours as are some of the batteries. Sandy Hook is also a major flyway for migratory birds and monarch butterflies. A very unique & beautiful natural place in sight of it's exact opposite.
