3-image panorama taken from Manhattan.

That large building on the other side is the Watchtower, the most famous of 34 properties in Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo owned by the Jehovah's Witnesses. The organization spent decades accumulating buildings in the area and are about to sell most of them with the intention of moving their headquarters upstate. Apparently, the portfolio spans 3.2 million square feet and is and is worth well over $1 billion. I imagine that a lot of local residents will be pleased to see them go :)

Dumbo is an acronym for 'Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass'.
