The Woodside Webcam is looking north from Woodside in New York City towards the Bronx. In the distance is LaGuardia Airport and the Whitestone Bridge. That thing near the middle of the image that looks like a Blue Meenie is the control tower a LaGuardia Airport.
The webcam has been up and running since December 1999. Occasional hardware issues / hardware migrations have caused interruptions through the years.
There has been a lot of activity at Laguardia Airport over the past eighteen months. An $8 billion renovation / construction project is progress that will soon be nearing completion. This is the first new major airport project in the United States in 25 years. You can see details here:
