NameArthur R
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI was driving in NYC on the East FDR Drive, surrounded by lights and some buildings, so I can't confirm some details about my observations, but it was obvious and beautiful. At first I thought it was a pyrotechnics display for Time's Square New Year's Eve celebration.
