Image Caption: New York City Area
The largest city in the United States, and one of the largest cities in the world, New York City and its metropolitan area can be seen in this north-looking view. The city is located on New York Bay at the mouth of the Hudson River. The bay is divided into Upper (north) and Lower Bays (south), which is connected by the Narrows, a strait 3 miles (5 km) long and 1 mile (1.6 km) wide. The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge (discernible near the center of the image) spans the strait. Raritan Bay and Sandy Hook are visible near the bottom center of the image.
