New York Harbor From The Torch Cam
While doing a little research on the Statue of Liberty post, I discovered another great cam – The Torch Cam! This cam is right on on the Torch and started operating on Oct. 28,2011. If you are a displaced New Yorker, a lover of boats, ferries and the sound of water, or just love New York – this is the cam for you! It is high up the our lady Liberty's torch and has a terrific view of much of the harbor and the cityscape. I just love the sound of the boat horns, the lapping waves, and the seagulls. At night you can see the Brooklyn Bridge, the passing ferries,and buildings all lit up like Christmas decorations.

I don't paint many cityscapes, but the Torch cam is a great reference if you do. If you paint boats, this is great for watching the movement and size comparison of the many boats that use the harbor. Be sure to click on the panorama button for a wider view of the Harbor.
