Just a few random shots from a rainy Saturday night in the city. *It was hard to hold an umbrella and steady camera with winds whipping up, so some of the pics are blurry....


That building looks familiar...

Did you have to wait long for the rainy day? :)

Soggy Streets has a Blade Runner quality.

The Westin shot is intriguing... kind of mysterious and dark.

Great spin on a horrible thing, NYguy. Isnt it great when you look at things in a different light?

I hate the city in the rain, as it also seems to never be nice these days. The bookstores are loving it Im sure.

But the Westin is a great shot, the array of colors are also spectacular. Times Square is not gray at all, it comes alive in dark, better maybe with the rain?

I really like how the Reuters Building looks. The sort of blur of the TST really has a nice effect.

Yes, I've always said Times Square is a treat on A rainy night. The neon reflecting from the street...amazing.

I love that shot of WorldWide Plaza practically shooting straight up from the street. *At night, with the steam from the HVAC emissions billowing at the top, it almost looks like a rocketship about to lift off.

There's always that one guy that has to have the biggest umbrella...
There he is in the middle, probably absent-mindedly jabbing someone in the back of the neck.

LOL. *Umbrellas become lethal weapons in NY when it rains. *I have the perfect technique of holding an umbrella in a way that other pedestrians can't see my face as we approach, thus they have to move out of my way or be spiked.

If you are dressed for it, New York in the rain is truly wonderful. Nobody on the street (in lower Manhattan, anyway) and its as if you've got the whole place to yourself. When you want to get out of the rain for a while, you can stop in to a Killarney Rose or Blarney Stone for a corned beef on rye and some mashed potatoes. I love it!

You've got the right idea, Jack.

The last time I went to New York, it was rainy, which was tolerable or annoying. At least I was dressed and prepared for the rain. Is it true that it has been raining a lot in New York lately?

Very true.

It's been raining so much(don't forget how cloudy it's been too) that every time I see the sun I cry in happiness. :)

Here is my rainy day picture:

Brooklyn Bridge (http://www.wirednewyork.com/bridges/brooklyn_bridge/default.htm), FDR drive and downtown Manhattan. The view from Manhattan Bridge on a rainy November day.

Rain falling on the deck of the Fulton Ferry Landing and the shadow of the Woolworth Building (http://www.wirednewyork.com/landmarks/woolworth/default.htm).

That was a beautiful sunset last night (Sunday). Hopefully the good weather has arrived.

Despite the gloomy weather most of my flowers and vegetable plants are doing well. I just can't cut the grass as it is always wet. My lawn is like a jungle. (Yes, some of us do have lawns in NYC!) I live in Queens.

All those photos are great. The one that Edward shot of the Woolworth from Brooklyn reminds me of a Steiglitz print I saw somewhere. Bravo!

If its saturday, and NY, it must be raining. *Grabbed a few more shots in the downpoor...


A 15 min train ride accross the swamps of New Jersey offered a glimpse of what awaits me in Manhattan...

http://www.pbase.com/image/18135064/large.jpg


Arrived in the city to find a soggy mess, but it was nice to see the Manhattan River making a comback at every intersection...

http://www.pbase.com/image/18135095/large.jpg


The natives have grown accustomed to the rain...

http://www.pbase.com/image/18135101/large.jpg


http://www.pbase.com/image/18136172/large.jpg


And the show must go on, according to these theatergoers who stand in the rain for tickets...

http://www.pbase.com/image/18135134/large.jpg


"Rain? What rain?..." asks the native on the right as he boldly endures the downpoor...

http://www.pbase.com/image/18135157/large.jpg


A view from the AMC theaters reveals that the sidewalks have thinned a bit...

http://www.pbase.com/image/18135283/large.jpg


But who wouldn't love a rainy day?

http://www.pbase.com/image/18135301/large.jpg


This headless duo doesn't seem to mind...

http://www.pbase.com/image/18135310/large.jpg


And the city could always use a good washing...

http://www.pbase.com/image/18135321/large.jpg


So, next time it rains just grab those umbrellas, the city awaits...

Nice to see the street life doesn't dampen with the weather.

But this is just wrong. I'm considering bribing the sun.

Weeds grow fast when it rains, also. *You walk by the AMNH and you see giant weeds growing through the cracks in the sidewalks.
