Last Night’s Lightning Sure Was Pretty


When our disgusting heat wave finally broke on Saturday night, it went out in a blaze of dramatic lightning. For many New Yorkers, that looked like vague flashes behind neighboring buildings. But for NBC News social media manager Anthony Quintano, who was just across the Hudson from Midtown, in Weehawken’s Hamilton Park, it was a picturesque display over a panoramic skyline. Fortunately for the rest of us, Quintano snapped some great photos, including the one above. The rest of his five-photo series can be seen on his Flickr stream.
