Truth be told, I initially took these last year on a very hot sultry day in July. However, I was playing around with different filters and thought this effect with the rough pastels” was kind of cool.
The other reason I’m posting this is that people from other parts of the country often don’t understand how close lower Westchester really is to Manhattan…Well, as you can see it’s close….REALLY close. Train stops in lower Westchester are seldom more than about 35- 40 minutes from mid-town. And if you live in a river town such as Yonkers, Dobbs Ferry, or even Tarrytown, driving to the west side of Manhattan is also a breeze. The bridge in both photos is the George Washington bridge that links the northern tip of Manhattan to New Jersey. So the buildings on the right side of the bridge are in New Jersey and on the left side you can see the Empire State building. The second photo emphasizes the Manhattan skyline while the first one shows off the GW Bridge.
The Yonkers waterfront is a new hotspot for new construction and high-end living. It boasts such restaurants Xaviars H2O on the Hudson. A great place to spend the evening and watch the boats on the river.
They say that real estate is all about location. Well Westchester NY certainly has location.
