Brooklyn

The three trapezoidal buildings look to be the ones at the right edge of the pic from Manhattan.

Mayan Ruins?

Hudson River or the bay? It looks like the tip of Governors Island on the left, which would be consistent with the normal run of the SI ferry. But what on earth are those three trapezoidal buildings in the background on the left, in what I am assuming is downtown Brooklyn? Or that parachute-jump looking number showing itself between the rear-facing pilothouse and the stack?
