WHERE...Long Island Sound west of Port Jefferson and New Haven, and New York Harbor.

A smoky late-afternoon view of Midtown

A look at Midtown late this afternoon from the East Village via EV Weather. 

Some background on what's happening from AccuWeather:
After a smoky sunset Monday evening, heavy smoke continued to hang over the Northeast on Tuesday, as a result of more than 100 wildfires burning in the western U.S. and more in Canada. Air quality advisories were in effect for much of Canada and had been issued for Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and New York City as the smoke descended from the upper levels of the atmosphere. 
The AQI reading in New York City Tuesday afternoon was an unhealthy 122, the highest this year so far. At this elevated number, health effects can be immediately felt by sensitive groups. Healthy individuals may experience difficulty breathing and throat irritation with prolonged exposure, and should limit outdoor activity.
The smoke will likely clear out overnight as a cold front moves into the area, AccuWeather notes.

The changing downtown skyline as seen from Avenue B

[Photo from last week]

Extell’s One Manhattan Square is becoming more prominent on the skyline, as seen above from Avenue B and Fourth Street ... the 80-story residential tower, at the site of the former Pathmark on Cherry Street, will feature 815 one-to-three-bedroom residences starting at $1.15 million.

And if you keep walking...

One Manhattan Square will likely be getting some skyline company: three more large-scale projects are being planned nearby along the East River. As The Lo-Down reported yesterday, the Department of City Planning announced that a "public scoping meeting" for a Two Bridges Environmental Review will take place on April 27.
