As Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders would say, “Manhattan is uge.” Emphasis on the “u.”
So uge that it’s hard, if not impossible, to photograph it from Manhattan. To do that requires some distance and a different vantage point: a view from a ferry, perhaps, or a view from one of the other boroughs.
Here’s how Manhattan looked from Staten Island.
The first photo shows a working dock, backdropped by the famous skyline. The second shows the Staten Island 9/11 memorial (called Postcards), centered on Ground Zero and One World Trade Center.
