Mandalay on the Hudson is a rather generic looking high rise condominium tower overlooking Newport to the north and the financial district to the south. To the east, stunning views of Manhattan are soon to be ruined with the construction of an office tower at the end of the Second Street. The building is block away from the Harborside Light Rail station, though quite a ways from the nearest PATH stations.
