I flew into LaGuardia Airport this summer with a great view of the Manhattan skyline and the airport from my seat on the left side of the plane.
The Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges span the East River visible between Brooklyn and Manhattan.
I always enjoy seeing the an airport from the sky where you can get a feel for the massive size against the general landscape.
It is easy to get one’s bearings when flying over New York City due to the many bridges and differing land masses.
Circling around LaGuardia on approach allowed me to see the Throgs Neck Bridge and the Whitestone Bridge. Then the beaches of Sands Point on Long Island.
At the northern tip of the runway is Rikers Island in the East River.
