I live in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Just moved in a few weeks ago, Yesterday and today, I noticed that aircraft were coming in a little lower than I've noticed since I got here. Greenpoint is in Northern Brooklyn and the appear to be approaching LGA from the south going northeast. I think?? Coming in low enough that this very nearsighted spotter could actually spot! Is this the expressway visual? What exactly is that?
Next question, I just moved here from Harlem. I could sit on my back deck facing north and spot approaching aircraft from the west. What approach is that?
Any basic info, would be appreciated. I'm really enjoying my walk home from the subway and spotting.
