My aunt lives in West Pier apartments and her third floor balcony gave me a great view. These pictures were taken there and also in the parking lot.
When the apartments were built I wondered why the contractor put the garages between the apartment buildings and the Lock's approach. He couldn't have been a boat watcher or he would have realized what a 'million dollar' view he was obscuring with the garages.
In spite of that, there is great boat watching here.

|The sunset is still beautiful even though it is partially blocked by the garages and other buildings of the apartment complex.|
