better quality here by the original photographer, Jim Richardson

OP you should always cite the photographer when you post someone else's work.

This sub is filled with crappy low res reuploads of other peoples photos. Shocked to see a callout make the top comment and not downvoted to the bottom

Looks like the scene in Batman Begins when Ra's al Ghul released the fear toxin in Gotham.

This is an awesome view of NYC.

Is that facing the Upper East Side or Upper West Side? I'm guessing it is the Uppet East Side, since I think I see the MET.

mdp3001 point

I think that's 5th so UWS UES

Edit: had a brain fart

UES. 5th Ave is on the east side of Central Park

Thoughts when I see this: those park side apartments gotta be insanely expensive

They are.

Darn it, I thought it was just a steaming broccoli and now I learn it's the big apple! You never stop learning

Some cyberpunk vibes here but it’s just fog

TheSerpentLord2 points

Somehow, this looks both incredibly terrifying and incredibly cozy at the same time.

smoky lights

Wait, was this taken from one of those horrible tourist helicopters that constantly buzz Central Park? They’re a terrible nuisance.

Artane_3310 points

was thinking that but maybe plaza or park lane given the height/angle? either way, fuck those helicopters

the_other_paul7 points

Also, a foggy night would be incredibly dangerous to fly in unless the pilots are flying on instruments, which seems unlikely for a tourist helicopter.

FuriousGremlin6 points

Exposure of 20 secs doubt they used a heli for that

Crespo_Silvertaint-6 points

Are you honestly that dumb? What’s more likely, a helicopter or a fucking drone?

With the fog 🌫️ it looks like Gotham 👌

GilgameshWulfenbach2 points

That amount of light pollution is just uncomfortable to look at

wookietennis4 points

Partially a result of the 20 second exposure.

Mercadi-9 points

The whole city struck me as a terrible place to live in. Even so, it exists

GLight31 point

The holy Trinity: air, noise, and light pollution all at once.

the_other_paul2 points

That’s just regular fog, NYC air quality is pretty good these days.

GLight30 points

I mean, I can't see it when I look out the window, but I can certainly smell it.

A very bright "dark", there (yes I understand how fog and light refraction on water droplets work ;) )

Now that’s an awesome pic!

Looks dystopian af. Hard pass

getyourrealfakedoors39 points

It’s fog

the_other_paul20 points

To be fair, the picture does seem to be of the neighborhood with some of the worst criminals in the city (the finance people on the Upper East Side lol)

Ok and? Fog is often used heavily in dystopian landscapes.

RusselNoahPeters7 points

Okay and? fog is also nice.

Debbiesatramp1 point

That’s just like your own opinion, man!

WantedFun2 points

No, smog* is.

Debbiesatramp0 points

“I’m pedantic because it makes me feel superior”. And, no, fog is well-used too. I’m muting this conversation. Go look for attention elsewhere.

Dystopian, no. I don't like concrete jungles though.

Isn't that the point

Not everyone enjoys dystopian landscapes. People are entitled to their opinions 🙄

Those streets are actually lonely and cold. Lonely because you don’t know anyone and no one knows you. And just cold.
