Holy cow, that's a million dollars view... does it cost you a (or multi-) million dollars?

Hey, how fitting... how about this for your house-warming gift?

Definitely not LIC. He's looking East across the Hudson. Pic taken on Jersey side.

You can see the Freedom Tower as well as WFC buildings.

Also clearly visible is Battery Park City.

Not in his photo but I'm almost positive still in his view is the Statue of Liberty.


Sweet view! Enjoy it!

Yup! I used to run along the Battery at sunrise.

Post a photo of Sun Up through the Manhattan Skyline.

It's a sight.

Again, enjoy it man!

Thanks! I've been looking for a while. Was very seriously considering relocating to Miami and buying a condo with a view in Brickell. However, I have a career here in Manhattan already so I ultimately decided I needed to commit to this area. I will always love Miami, but at least I have this view to comfort me.

I'm looking at the same (Tampa side now). Brickell has amazing deals.

Fixed.

Tampa side definitely has better buying opportunties now that Brickell inventory has largely been absorbed. I lived in Clearwater for a while (Rocky Point). I really liked it down there.

Very nice!

Forget the TV ...... I'd just sit there and stare out the windows all the time.
__________________
The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there".

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.”
“They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”

Extra credit: It's "I'm looking for an M3" not "I'm looking for a M3".

I realized that after I posted, which is why I followed that up with the Jersey City guess.

I used to live in Weehawken and take the NY Waterway ferry into work every day.
