The sun rises Tuesday morning on Manhattan’s Upper Westside:
The picture on the left was taken at 7:16 a.m. Across the river in New Jersey just a very few buildings are light on top and the landscape behind them is still dark. The second shot is a mere two minutes later, yet the shadows cast by the taller buildings to the east are lower and much of the land across the Hudson is now bathed in light.
At 7:16, the buildings are still in shadow in Manhattan and across the river. A minute later,
and even more before the minute is up.
The first serious snow of the new year, appropriately named Janus.
