If you were looking up at the NYC night sky on Tuesday, you might have seen a rainbow. Called Global Rainbow, After the Storm, the huge laser light show stretched over the city skyline as a shining symbol of hope and a call to support to the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

    The last 2 days I went out with my camera to take pictures of the Sandys Rainbow light show. Both days I left from my house on 31St and Park Ave. Yesterday I was not really dressed for it so I just walked over to 7th Ave. On Thursday I left 31 St and Park ave. and walked down to 14th St. and 9 th Ave. It was about 9:00 pm she. I got there. I was looking in the direction of where the Standard hotel is located. I stood there for about 15 minutes. I never saw any lights.
    I really do not understand why I could not see the lights. It is claimed that you could see them from 35 miles away. I was a lot closer than that. I also went online to see if they had any kind of schedule listed. All it said was from 8:00 pm to 2:00 am. Sure was a big waste of my time.
