787 from RPI winter venkata

Venkata sent along this photo after a recent snowfall -- it's from the 9th floor of a building at RPI. We like the streaks formed by the traffic on 787 Route 7 as it heads off into the background.

We're a bit envious of the view from his office.

Here's a large-format version, along with one more photo.

(Thanks, Venkata)

Always liked nighttime photos, especially when the traffic creates those streaks.

Is there any possibility we're actually seeing Route 7 (formerly Alt. 7) in the background as it heads west? Or are my bearings way off?

That's Route 7

@Amanda, Bob: You're correct. I had it turned in my head. (And I totally should have known better because of the Hedley building. Oof.) Thanks for catching that.

These pics are amazing! Pity my lab at the 8th floor has no windows.. :(

Um, his "office" must be really uncomfortable this time of year as the first photo clearly shows that he's on the rooftop. So I wouldn't be too envious.

The hoopla about American Pharoah coming to Saratoga is so over-the-top, you would think he was dragging a Wegmans behind him.
