    Since other forums have this thread I thought I would start one for HGVC. Share your view from HGVC locations on this thread

    Here is our view from a studio premier unit at W57 high floor. Balconies are a few floors below this room but the floor to ceiling window vistas of Central Park are fantastic. (This view is a benefit of owning NYC bHC because owners take these limited units first during resort reservation window so HGVC and RCI points traders get smaller units on lower floors creating a very different impression of W57.)

    P.S. If you choose the "full image" option when uploading your picture, the image will appear inline instead of requiring a separate click to view it.

    I can see the pictures in all of these except @CalGalTraveler's OP. Not sure why. I don't even see the link?

    Some time back I tried to upload a picture of sitting on the balcony, but it didn't work for me. Perhaps I'll try again.

    Edit: The link showed up for me now. Great (and familiar) pic!

    Cheers.

    So when I select the "Upload a File" button, there is a popup where you can browse and select the image file from your computer. After you select it, the image file is listed below the text edit box (where I am typing right now). By the file that is listed, there are two buttons: "Thumbnail" and "Full Image". If you select "Full Image", the picture will be inserted into the post. Hope that makes sense!

    Thanks Kurt. For some reason this option is not appearing on my mobile device. May need to correct when I return home and have a computer screen.

    That is probably the difference; maybe that option is not available on the mobile site.

    Not from the Balcony, but the north parking lot facing the Stratosphere.

    I don't think this is Valdoro. It looks like possibly Sunrise Lodge in Park City?

    You are correct. You have been to Valdoro too many times. Thanks

    It's too late for me to edit my original post but here is the W57 Studio Premier View of Central Park from the 23rd Floor inline. Studio Premier Balcony shown by @brp in earlier post is two floors below. (image magnified. W 57 is one block south of Central Park so there is a row of buildings in between.)

    View of the new HGVC Quin across the street from W57 as viewed from the 23rd floor. It appears there are a few units with penthouse balconies. Looks like it has about 16 floors. W57 has 26 floors.

    How do you rotate the photo? I’m stuck in the same situation.

    I think you need to edit and rotate the photo before you upload. There is no option to rotate after it is uploaded.

    Yup. Most (all?) photo editing packages will allow rotate.

    Cheers.
