Stunning photo of NYC’s last 2013 sunrise – Boing Boing

BB pal Scott Matthews took this magnificent photo of New York City during the last sunrise of 2013. The view is looking east from Morningside Heights, across Harlem and Central Park, toward the smokestacks at Queens’ Astoria Generation Station.

Still doesn’t capture the raw, unbridled mass and power of The Apple the way the view toward The Battery from the top of the Empire State does, but pretty impressive nonetheless.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Well, thanks. The sun did indeed rise on a new New York. Yesterday, DeBlasio graciously advised us that Gracie Mansion (the official residence of New York’s mayor) wasn’t really his house. “I’m just borrowing it from all of you,” he said. What interests me is that he seems to believe that we needed this reassurance.
