Though I was confined to J.F.K. last Thursday, it was the first time in my life that I laid eyes on the N.Y. skyline.
As we were flying right down the middle of Long Island from the north east to land, I was amazed at the long stretch of beach between the ocean and the inner body of water. It looks like some areas were only about a few blocks wide between the water.
Then about 10 minutes before we landed, I saw some huge ass castle looking estates not too far away from some working class looking houses. I don't know the lay of the land, so I wasn't sure if that was the Hamptons??
I do regret that I was never able to see the twin towers, I've been to the top of the Sears tower in Chicago, but until this week I had never been anywhere near the tri-state area
