Sunset view in New York City

Where: Lower East Side (Orchard Street), New York City
When: late 1899, but relevant only as to the absence of too many buildings above 10 stories. More relevant: early November, at dusk.

From a four- or five-story tenement-style building in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, what would you see if you are watching the sunset on a clear evening in early November? Modern details are fine, I can erase the newer buildings in my head. Which direction southwest would the sun be? Over Jersey City or farther down?


Searched: sunset New York
Consulted: New York Google map and compass directions :)
