View driving from Manhattan to New Jersey

Setting: December 1985
Googled: "new jersey turnpike," "driving from manhattan to new jersey," "newark bay extension"

So I feel silly because I'm pretty sure I've driven this route before, but I wasn't paying much attention to the scenery at the time. Help a foreigner out here?

My characters are stuck in traffic on the New Jersey Turnpike (at least, I'm assuming that this is the route they'd take out of Manhattan; correct me if I'm wrong) and staring out the windows. What would they actually see, skyline-wise?
