Hovering Over Uptown

The other night when most of my fellow passengers we’re dozing away in sleepy airplane bliss, I was transfixed at my window seat gazing down at New York City completely aglow. When I realized we were swinging over Manhattan, I pulled out my camera and captured my neighborhood on film from a few thousand feet above. North of 96th Street is always beautiful in its own way, but on this evening, from this angle it was a stunning sight to behold.
