This radar image of the New York city metropolitan area was taken by the space shuttle Endeavour on October 10, 1994. Manhattan is the bluish finger-like area near the left-central part of the image (Central Park is the green rectangle near the center). North is toward the upper right. The area shown is 46 miles by 30 miles (75 km by 49 km). In general, light blue areas correspond to dense urban development, green areas to moderately vegetated zones and black areas to bodies of water. The Hudson River is the black strip that runs from the left edge to the upper right corner of the image. It separates New Jersey, in the upper left of the image, from New York. The Atlantic Ocean is at the bottom of the image where two barrier islands along the southern shore of Long Island are also visible. Image used with permission from NASA.
