I was so thankful for that rainbow last night. And then today I found out what it's for and I'm even more thankful for it!!! An amazing artist, Yvette Mattern, has dedicated this 35-mile light installation as a memorial to Sandy victims. (Read all about it on Co.Exist or HuffPo.) It was on display last night and will be on again the nights of Nov. 28 & 29. It's streaming from the High Line towards the storm devastated areas in Brooklyn. Oh, I love it. And I love New York.
“I hope that seeing this beacon in the night sky will provide people with a sense of peace and security in this time of crisis and that it will unify us with its presence so we remember that we are all in this together, regardless of divisions of class, race, religion, and culture.” - Yvette Mattern
