Despite possibly the worst sky conditions for cityscape photography you can get (aside from pouring rain or heavy snow), I tried to get what I could in Boston and NYC. Matt and I lugged our camera gear up the 294 stairs of the Bunker Hill monument on Tuesday for this view:

The sky conditions were so bad that I didn't bother stopping again in New York City on my way back home, opting to just fire a few shots through the windows while sitting in traffic on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. Here is the Empire State building (I could actually see it this time), viewed from Brooklyn:

On the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge into Staten Island. Costs ten bucks to cross now! I topped at least 25 dollars in tolls (All in New Jersey, New York and Massachusetts) round-trip, and that's with taking the 'long way' and surface streets in many places to avoid toll roads as much as possible.

Hartford, Connecticut earlier in the day. An impressive skyline for what (before this) I thought was a small NE city.
