See London Directly From NYC, and Vice Versa

Now this is mind-blowing!
- Seeing New York right through a powerful telescope from the street of London! Well, it's called telectroscope, to be exact. The outlandish idea is the brain-child of Alexander St George almost 150 years ago, and it is now finally complete, after a century of construction, and open for the public. It's made possible by the secret channel running through the Atlantic Ocean.

It's open 24 hours a day.

The New York Telectroscope is free for visit, and is situated at Fulton Ferry Landing near Brooklyn Bridge.
