Somewhere...Upper East Side

Hey, I can't be slumming all the time in my GV hood!

Great photo. Is that the UN building and a Trump Tower I can spy?

Dude, you gotta tell all this. For your visitors from far-far-away. ;)

Oh and, I spy GV behind you. Waaay behind you.

Ah!! As a disclaimer: I used to live in Tudor City Place. I could not see Russia from my home but I could see the entire United Nations.
The bridge, I am not too sure of its name. I think it's the Queenboro but I may be completely wrong.

I spy a great skyline anyway you show it. We will allow you outta your cage from time to time. Nice shot. Looks like an old postcard for some reason.

the photo looks like it's been taken from a very tall tower. Is that the case?
