Photo of the Day (1/15/09)

From our Gadling group at Flickr comes this shot taken by olyman almost exactly where the USAirways flight 1549 ditched today. I’ve always wanted to kayak around Manhattan, and I probably would have discovered this picture eventually, but with the exciting news that everyone appears to have survived the ditching of the A320 in the Hudson River, I wondered if there was a picture in the Gadling group taken from a a similar vantage point.

Sure enough, this looks like it was taken around the same spot, albeit at a much warmer time of the year.

My hat’s off to the flight attendants and pilots of USAirways 1549.
