  STS085-738-051 Greater New York City Area, New York, USA August 1997
One of the world's largest population centers (exceeding 10 million in 1999) that includes metropolitan New York City (NY) and greater Newark (NJ) area is visible in this west-looking oblique view. Two prominent sandy features, Sandy Hook (NJ) and Rockaway Point (NY), partially enclose Lower Bay and separate it from the Atlantic Ocean. Staten Island is the large island northwest of Lower Bay. Immediately north of Lower Bay (and through The Narrows) the much smaller Upper Bay is visible. The southern end of the Hudson River flows into Upper Bay. A series of sandy barrier islands are visible along the south coast of Long Island. Jamaica Bay is the large enclosed bay with many islands due east from Brooklyn. The west end of Long Island Sound can be identified as the irregular shaped body of water along the north side of Long Island.
