Wet is Beautiful

Dreary weather in the city is an opportunity to experience the High Line in an altogether different way. If you're bold enough  to venture up despite the rain, you'll be rewarded with stillness, solitude, and strange beauty as surfaces sparkle and plant colors pop.

 Going up on a rainy night is still another adventure – we love this photo set taken Friday night by landscape photographer Rick Darke. The wet grasses are luminous, and the surrounding skyline and streets below show vibrant streaky colors.
