The photo below shows the sun setting behind the Galaxy Apartments in Guttenberg New Jersey. The three Galaxy buildings went up in 1976, among the earliest towers built on that side of the river. The main entrances to the towers are on top of the Palisades cliffs, but the bases continue down to river level. River Road in Guttenberg now is developed with low rise condominiums, but back in 1976 this was a post-industrial wasteland, marked by railroad tracks and oil storage tanks.

On the left in the photo you can see two new towers more recently completed in Journal Square, Jersey City.
