I drove my girlfriend to JFK airport at two in the morning. I decided to go find a spot in NJ where I could take a night/early morning shot of the city. I took the shot and then fell asleep in my car in a parking lot.

I was soo tired that I didn't realize until later that I made a big mistake... I didn't shoot in RAW. I am still very pleased with the results.

-Sharpen
-Highlights and Shadow adjustments

This looks like it was shot from the new football field in Weehawaken. Nice job. I always have shot at sunset from near the Charthouse. I am going to have to get up pretty early to grab a lovely shot like this.

Your foreground choice is striking and makes this image more than just your ordinary cityscape shot - I like it. I think if the colored reflections in the water had not been long enough to extend into your foreground, it might not have been as effective a shot - the reflections seem to serve the purpose of marrying the foreground to the background.
