Here are some pictures which I clicked from the plane while landing ( or maybe take off ) at La Guardia in New York. I had to change flights over there, on my way from Rochester to Savannah, GA.
There are a couple of pictures of Manhattan in this. You can see some of the bridges as well: Brooklyn Bridge, George Washington Bridge etc. My personal favorite is the aerial view of John F Kennedy Airport (JFK).

Left To Right : Aerial Pictures of Manhattan and around

1) Manhattan - the area where the World Trade Center once stood. You can see some of the well known bridges of New York as well.
2) In the second picture - can you see the Statue of Liberty on that small little island somewhere near the middle of the photograph ?
3) Another view of the Manhattan skyscrapers from the plane.
4) An aerial view of John F Kennedy International Airport. Needless to say, one of the busiest airports in the world. Probably beaten by only Chicago and Atlanta in annual air traffic, though I'm not entirely sure about this.
5) The picture at the bottom - a wider view of Manhattan.
