Station View of New York City

ISS040-E-108386 (25 Aug. 2014) --- One of the Expedition 40 crew members aboard the Earth-orbiting International Space Station photographed this image of a large part of New York City on Aug. 25, 2014. Manhattan Island and its Central Park are tell-tale points for recognition purposes for the six-person crew of the orbital outpost, flying approximately 225 nautical miles above the city. The 800mm focal length used by the crew member provides great detail in the scene.
