Looking Past Leonardo on a Clear Night

A view from the Bayshore of the NY skyline

On a clear weekend night on the shores of the bay at the Atlantic Highlands border, you can see ... a tranquil, dark beach and a lit up New York skyline.

While our camera didn't take very well to the dark, some interesting shots of the sights were caught through the Middletown Patch lens.

From the barren beach to the light-dotted horizon showcasing a glowing city across the Raritan bay, there were definitely some sights to see from the side.

Take a look (in the gallery above). And, if you happened to be out and about with your camera over the weekend, upload your photos and share them with us.

too bad they didn't come clearer - but you brought back so many wonderful memories - I spent Tuesday nights (I think it was Tuesday) sitting in the sand infront of a large log, by the Leonardo (Conover Beacon) Light House watching the fireworks across the bay in Coney Island during the summers back, way back in the 60's !

Good thing it wasn't so clear. Then u would see all the debris, garbage and glass making Leonardo Beach not fit to walk on. Where do our taxes go? The beach could us some attention.

it is so sad - when I was a kid there was some glass but not like today - in fact we used to collect SEA GLASS - but the glass on the beaches today is new, sharpe & ugly pieces of glass - I'm at the beach, here in NY all summer and all I do is pick up glass off the beach and it just never ends !
