This week’s sunset is from New York City!
I just returned to New York City, my favorite city in the world, which also happens to have some of the best sunsets in the world! I love sitting in East River State Park in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where this photo was taken. The views at sunset are magnificent as you can see almost the entire length of the Manhattan skyline while the sky changes its color slowly from blue to purple to pink and finally bright orange. This is a spot where you find barely any tourists, and you can bring a picnic! I love picking up some fresh food from one of the bakeries in Williamsburg and the divine cheese shop on Bedford Avenue and dine al fresco while watching the sun disappear behind the skyscrapers. I don’t think I could ever get tired of watching the sunset over Manhattan from that spot. A better known sunset spot in New York is the Brooklyn Heights promenade just south of the Brooklyn Bridge, which has stunning sunset vistas over the southern end of Manhattan.
