We went to North Central Park and walked around for a bit before it started raining (of course, right, it was sunny all day to start). So we hid in this little garden underneath a tree that at first provided surprisingly good shelter, then less effective when it became a downpour. We were both completely soaked by the time it stopped, but it was marvelous watching and hearing the rain fall on the water, the trees, the benches and ground. And when the sun came out again after, the park was incredibly gorgeous.
It started clouding over and looking like it might rain again after we took a few pictures, so we found scaffolding away from the park and escaped the twenty minute thunderstorm.
I do so love New York when it rains.
