Actually, this post is starting with July 3, above. It has been raining like crazy, lately. Summer rain in NYC is crazy. It can be torrential for a few minutes, then the sun comes out.
Here are some from the evening of the 4th of July. These were snapped from the roof of a boutique hotel on the west side of Manhattan. The Hudson was completely packed with boats loaded with people ready to watch fireworks.
And then, the mass exodus down river, after the fireworks. I really like the way these slow shutters came out.
