New York City Skyline and Long Island City Rooftops- By Vivienne Gucwa
There is something so magical about dusk in New York City.
After the sun sets for the evening, the city is a symphony of lights reaching their crescendo at the same time as the night pulls itself over the rooftops and skyscrapers below.
And if you squint just a little,
all of the lights twinkle
like fireflies in an urban forest.
This is a 15 second exposure taken while standing on the roof of Z Hotel in Long Island City, Queens. The rooftops of Long Island City sit in the foreground. To the right is the Queensboro Bridge (also known as the 59th Street Bridge, and the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge). The skyline of midtown Manhattan including the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building sit in the distance.
