"Lightning Hits Bklyn Bridge"
"It was a dark, and stormy night,..."
No, no vampires or republicans wandering about. However for reasons unknown the City put on a short fireworks display over the East River. This during a heavy summer downpour in the middle of the night.
That's what I likes about NYC. Ya never know what's waiting for you around the next corner. I'm gonna assume they was testing the rocket barges out. This for the annual July 4th display.
Anyway while the Parks Department was shooting up the sky a huge bolt of lightning hit the Brooklyn Bridge. Another one hit the Woolworth Building a few seconds later,...didn't get that shot.
(The video is just a minute or two long, and the hit comes toward the end. Watch the left side of the screen.)
