With a little bit of imagination you can recognize Manhattan in this picture. The flight was from Dulles to Schiphol and it was just minutes before New Years in the plane (Amsterdam time). Local time was just a few minutes to six.
The flight was dirt cheap but still less than 75% of the seats on the plane were occupied.
I was alone but had a great time celebrating new years with the German couple behind me who shared a small bottle of champagne.

I know how hard is to take a photo from a plane especially in nighttime. But it's a good and unusual view of Manhattan for me.
