We’re Not a ‘Sunsets-are-Pretty’ Website But We Had to Post This One

Is it cheesy to post sunsets on our news blog? Kind of. But 13-year-old Mia An Xiao Bin Stubner took these amazing shots from an Upper West Side rooftop looking over the Hudson River on Thursday and we felt like you needed to see them. Thanks Mia!

RD Enochs also took the photos below.

      Keep ’em coming. It’s a great relief not to read and listen to news all the time. A beautiful sunset allows us to breathe and take in more news.

      Spectacular sunset last night, it almost didn’t look real, or like a Bob Ross painting. There were happy little trees too! Thanks for posting these amazing photos. Glad I wasn’t the only one who noticed the light show.

      I don’t like commenting on pics, but these sunsets pics are indeed beautiful! Looks like they were taken from the high rise on 96 and B’way.

      I wish I’d gone to the river last night. These photos are gorgeous. Thank you for taking them!
