Jamaica Bay in New York City • Earth.com

Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at Jamaica Bay in New York City.

Located along the southeast side of Brooklyn, Jamaica Bay provides somewhat of a respite from city life, especially with the long sands of Rockaway Beach. Still, the subway periodically clatters through, and the ultra-busy John F. Kennedy International Airport ensures a steady stream of airplanes flying overhead.

This image was captured by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on board NASA’s Landsat 8 satellite.
